Potholes and cracked highway

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category by David G. Meacock at 17:26, Saturday 18 March 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later

I have previously reported this months ago and STILL it's as dangerous and unfixed as before. How main a road does it have to be before this sort of defect gets fixed?

As is driving like a slalom course, I'm putting you on notice that any damage to my car will be charged 100% at the full New Price as will my hassle time @ £100 per hour and I'll see you in the Small Claim Court if payment isn't immediately made within a week my such claim.

Get this road fixed IMMEDIATELY!

  • 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.
