Recent water main failure caused extensive collateral damage beyond the excavation done by Thames Water. They have now re-surfaced the hole they created but have totally ignored the other serious damage done to the adjacent road and pavements. A total disgrace and a dumping of the repairs that are now required on to Bucks CC and us - Council Tax Payers. They are about to wrap and leave. Suggest an urgent inspection by Bucks CC

    Two further photos of the collateral damage caused by the major failure of the water main that caused a river of water to run down One Pin Lane for several hours on Sunday 11 July and Monday 12 July, eroding the road and the pavements.

    This pavement remains in a dangerous condition. One week ago Thames Water came and marked it for repair. They returned the following day with traffic controls etc but only repaired one pothole nearby. This pavement is a clear and present hazard. The risk of an accident is significant if not high. The pavement is a well used thoroughfare by pedestrians of all ages including young children on scooters and small bikes. A fall would have a 50% chance of causing the individual to fall on to the adjacent driveway or a 50% chance of falling on to the busy and fast road just inches away, with potentially much more serious consequences. Health & Safety legislation is designed to assess risk having identified a hazard and take action to mitigate that risk. I know the site was visited on Wed. 21 July by supervisory staff from both Thames Water and Bucks CC. I am surprised that no action has yet been taken to either close or repair the damage to this pavement.
