Road surface failed throughout close

Reported via mobile in the Road surface category anonymously at 21:34, Fri 31 March 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4383701.

The road surface in Swan Close has completely failed. There are now 4 large areas of potholes which hold water and 50% of the remaining road surface has disappeared exposing an old concrete road. The pot holes are a trip hazard to our elderly neighbours and a severely disabled boy who lives in the close as well as cyclists. This has been reported repeatedly but nothing done and is getting worse. I have loads more photos if required. Please can this be addressed urgently?

  • 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.
