Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4353865.

Construction traffic continues to punish this stretch of road. heading towards Risborough there are numerous deep potholes opening up close to kerb. anything smaller than a lorry likely to be thrown off course and severely damaged. this is a safety concern. The b4009 between the wendover bypass and terrick roundabout should be regularly pro-actively inspected and repaired as this will continue to be an issue until the hs2 works are concluded

  • 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.
