Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4376263.
There is pothole just outside 16 bull strode way, the problem has already been reported and nothing has been done about it. It has now caused serious damage to my car. Which the previous report indicated it was a serious hazard. The pothole is now 150mm in depth.
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.
