Tring Road Trouble

by Mark Willis on 26 September, 2010

Many residents will have noticed that the road surface between Oakfield Road and the Cemetery along the Tring Road is less than satisfactory, this sorry state of affairs has been caused by Buckinghamshire CC’s own contractors, and the particularly poor job they have made of repairs after the winter freeze.

The good news is that your Liberal Democrat team have managed to get action to fix the road. The repair will take place in half term towards the end of October – this is not a bad time as traffic is generally lighter, but there will undoubtedly still be problems and delays, so we have also managed to get Bucks CC to commit to keeping residents fully informed about exactly what will happen. The discussions are centring on the use of traffic lights and if they will be used 24 hours a day – keep checking the website for more details.

At the other end of the Tring Road after the Bedgrove turning BT have also been making a mess of their road works, a trench that BT dug across the road has created a speed hump, the volume of traffic is such that this speed hump has been transferring vibration into the homes adjoining this poor repair, and causing damage and noise. Following pressure from local residents and the Lib Dems, Buckinghamshire CC Highways have acted, and have forced BT to carry out remedial works, but there are still problems, so we will be keeping an eye on this issue and helping any residents who get in touch.
