Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4138291.
This has been dug around for repair and been in the state for quite some time. Apart from cyclists, given the proximity of the pothole to the bollard in the road and its size, it could be dangerous for bigger vehicle including pedestrians on the footpath. This needs urgent repaid. Given the current condition, I presume this has been planned for some time now. Thanks,
This has been passed to the local area technician to investigate the enquiry/issue regarding a pothole/road surface.
During winter months we receive a very high number of reports regarding potholes or a poor road surface, it's easy to assume that potholes are formed due to roads being poorly maintained but that is not usually the case. There are many factors that can cause potholes, particularly during the winter months when water seeps in through cracks in the road surface, collecting underneath and when the water freezes, it expands and forces up the road surface in through cracks in the road surface.
Our priority is always the safety of road users, so in some cases during busy periods a permanent repair is not always possible immediately. However, temporary repairs are a way to ensure the area is safe until such times as we can return to make a permanent repair.
