Haw Lane, Bledlow Ridge.
Reported via desktop in the Road surface category anonymously at 12:40, Thursday 9 March 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4295004.
There are numerous potholes along the length of Haw Lane, from the Chinnor Road turning all the way down to the junction with Deansfield. there are too many to specify, and at some of these locations the road surface has failed completely. There is now a potential for damage to vehicle tyres and suspension, so the road should be resurfaced as soon as possible. Just filling in the potholes won't solve the issue as there are just too many, and the temporary fixes fail after a few weeks anyway. Please deal with this, as it's no longer just inconvenient, there is now a possibility of an accident happening as a result of a burst tyre when one of these potholes is encountered.
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.
