Road repairs online
21 June 2010, 12:00
All the information about roads and transport in Buckinghamshire is being put online.
A new website is launching today (Monday) which will let you report problems on the roads - like potholes - keep track of the progress of road works and see where road gangs are working each day.
The Service Information Centre is being run by Buckinghamshire County Council and will also help you keep track of their winter maintenance, like gritting, and will act as the main communications channel for school travel planning and public transport.
Valerie Letheren, Cabinet Member for Transport for Buckinghamshire said: “This is a really exciting project and the first of its kind in the country. The Service Information Centre will help members of the public track what our teams are doing and communicate with us much more effectively. We hope this will help the public have a full understanding of how we work. For example, all our winter gritting and road works in Buckinghamshire will be mapped. Members of the public will be able to see when the gangs last visited and when they are due to visit again. By providing more information online, it will mean that the public won’t need to call us to find out information and will be able to access this online instead.”
