Potholes and Metal Covera
Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 20:16, Saturday 25 March 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4358829.
This area now resembles a bomb site, the entire portio is riddled with craters and the metal covers in the road are coming loose and rattling when cars go over it. The potholes cause vibrations to the houses nearby when HGV’s hit them. Rather than post a generic response about potholes, can this actually be fixed due to the heavy traffic in the area. This has been reported several times by various people over the course of a few months so any damage that occurs as a result of the holes is the legal responsibility of the council and roads departments.
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.
