Pothole getting bigger every day

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 12:21, Saturday 1 April 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4385208.

Location as per map. Your website says already reported and to be actioned in July 2023!!!!!!!! This pothole is getting bigger each day as more stone are slashed out of the base as can be seen in the road to the right of the pothole. Locals know about this pothole and are now driving on the verge to the right of the pothole to avoid it. Non locals do not see the size of the pothole and so drive into it (especially when it is full of water) thus increasing the size of the hole. There are also 2 further holes which are a few metres further towards the village which will soon be as big as this pothole.

  • 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.
