Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4346631.
There is serious damage to the road edges all the way along the road, in particular just over the rise on the left leading away from Warrendene Road where there is a very large pothole and 2 drain covers that are exposed. Almost opposite this damage is another area of large holes which necessitates driving from one side of the road to the other to avoid them. Also the drain cover outside the first house on the left past the Gate pub has sunk making a large hole.
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.
