A4010 Wycombe Rd at junction with Bradenham Wood Lane

Reported via iOS in the Pothole category anonymously at 13:01, Thu 30 March 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4376981.

Very deep & dangerous pothole observed this morning. Sorry, too dangerous to try to take a photo. Estimated depth 6 inches. Very significant hazard to nearside wheels of traffic heading towards Wycombe. Width & length of pothole maybe 5 by 5 inches, but it’s the depth that is shocking. Location is exactly at the junction with Bradenham Wood Lane, exactly in line with that road’s centre line. Drivers on the A4010 have plenty to concentrate on already without having to contend with this hole at the last moment when & where evasive action is impossible. Thank you

  • 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.
