Numerous roads surrounding Buckingham have been affected by an increased number of heavy goods vehicles passing through as a result of East West Rail and HS2. This has led to potholes opening and causing damage to users cars.

Buckinghamshire Council has announced that the East West Rail alliance will be carrying out these repairs over the next year.

The cabinet member for transport, Steven Broadbent explained a programme of permanent repairs to the 12 roads deeply affected over the next 12 months, on February 2nd at a meeting of the Transport, Environment and Climate Change Committee.

Councillor Boradbent said: “Many months of hard work from both councillors and council officers has gone into securing agreement from East West Rail to reinstate the roads we believe they should be fixing as a result of their construction activities.”

He also went on to reassure residents that they are not expected to pay for the damage to the roads, as well as thanking them for their patience over improving the road conditions.

Three roads have already been repaired, near the villages of Steeple Claydon, Newton Longville and Whaddon.

The following roads are due for repair in the upcoming months:

Verney Road, Little Horwood Road, Buckingham Road/Herds Hill, Sandhill Road, Oxhill Lane and Lenborough Road.
