An additional £1m has been allocated for the Transport for Buckinghamshire (TfB) plane and patch programme during the current financial year.
Due to popularity with Councillors and residents in Buckinghamshire, an extra £1m has been allocated for the TfB plane and patch programme this financial year.
The work commenced in November and involves 27 schemes. Weather permitting, the work should be complete by end of March 2020.
Over 100 plane and patch treatments were completed by TfB completed across Buckinghamshire earlier this year. This was in addition to the general road surfacing programme for major roads.
The proposed list for repair in this latest tranche of roads selected for plane and patch treatments is:
- Shortway, Amersham.
- Baring Road, High Wycombe.
- Deeds Grove, High Wycombe.
- Chessbury Road, Chesham.
- Ryecroft Road, Chesham.
- Delmeade Road, Chesham.

- Main Street, Charndon.
- Cokes Lane, Chalfont St Giles.
- Bellswood Lane, Iver.
Delivery of the entire list (above) will be subject to no anomalies being found and the availability of road space.
Plane and patch work is particularly effective on minor roads as this type of treatment provides a great opportunity to repair pothole clusters and focus on the roads that cause the most concern for members of the public.
TfB’s Local Area Technicians (LATs), coordinating with local councillors, will continue to choose and guide the schemes in the plane and patch programme. LATs have a broad knowledge of the roads around Buckinghamshire and understand areas that will benefit the most from the plane and patch treatment.
