Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4361126.
Original repair work here was shoddy and has gradually deteriorated since I reported it ages ago. I didn't re-report while the Jackson Road junction was being built because of the additional volume of heavy traffic that that brought. However, there is now a worse string of pot holes on the A41 inward side at Meadowcroft roundabout. I couldn't upload all the photos I took but they are not that good anyway as I didn't fancy stepping into then traffic to take them!
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.
