Motorcyclists Beware! (Ed) Remedial resurfacing work was carried out on Narcot Lane Chalfont St Giles on Friday 3 July 2020.
For your further information Buckinghamshire Council have a 20mph temporary speed limit in place and the actions of slow moving traffic embeds the stone chips into the surface. Motorists drive slowly, keeping a safe distance between them and the cars in front and avoid braking sharply or overtaking for a couple of weeks until the surface settles. At least 2 sweeps a day will be carried out over the following 2 weeks to remove any excess stones, after which lining will be reinstated.
If you have any issues relating to this resurfacing work please use the website www.fixmystreet.com
