Battingswood road surface is a disgrace
Reported via desktop in the Road surface category anonymously at 09:08, Sunday 26 March 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4359286.
The majority of the road surface in Battingswood Close has failed. Numerous potholes, broken surface, exposed lower strata and areas of debris. It is a disgrace and urgently needs attention and full resurfacing. Minor patch repairs have proved inadequate over the Council has instead resurfaced an entirely satisfactory pavement in the area within the past couple of years, wrongly using public money. We, the residents, demand to know the date at which this road will be repaired. Please.
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.
