Large pot holes along a busy road

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 23:28, Thu 16 March 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4323190.

Along Churchill avenue there are multiple potholes, this is just one of the bigger ones. This hole has lost the tarmac and is between 0.5-1meter long. It is between the large church square and the roundabout by the park. This pothole has been developing for a while, it was just acrack opening up in the road and over winter (?since September) has just got bigger. A lot of the potholes along Churchill avenue are on the edge of the road and makes it difficult for cyclists especially. Potholes that have been 'fixed' often haven't been filled enough or have been overfilled which still makes it dangerous.

Updates

  • 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.
