Dear Sir / Madam,
Hope you well. Happy New Year.
There are multiple dangerous potholes on Bishopstone Road, Bishopstone Bucks, HP17 8SF and on Marsh Road, Marsh, Bucks, near to HP17 8SF.
Bishopstone Road in Bishopstone, Bucks needs to be checked from Stone Village side at junction with Portway Road right through to the other end of the road to railway line crossing near North Lee. There are multiple big potholes and smaller ones and some are very deep which could cut and rip apart tyres.
Same with Marsh Road, Marsh, Bucks needs to be checked and potholes filled and sealed.
Please arrange filling of potholes and then seal them up with tarmac. This requires urgent attention and needs to be done as soon as possible, as people in villages and passing traffic have vulnerability as their tyres could be cut and ripped apart by potholes.
Thank you for attending to this as a matter of urgency.
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.
