Shocking pothole still open and not filled by council, as claimed

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 21:50, Friday 24 March 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4356048.

Shocking pothole still open and not filled by council, as claimed. Potholes are obviously expected in the UK, especially in Bucks, but when you’re told by the council it has been fixed - it’s shocking to see that it hasn’t. In fact the same potholes remain - albeit bigger - and part of it was filled in with loose tarmac. Not even filled completely as a temporary measure. This is taxpayers money really being wasted. Yet another call out fee charged to the council by these rogue contractors no doubt. Very sad

  • 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.
