A41 outside Burnhams Field
Reported via mobile in the Pothole category by Peter Routledge at 13:36, Mon 3 April 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4392975.
If as you say there is planned road works at this location starting 10th April could you please summarise the work. It seems to me that preference is given to contractors building new housing and the interests and rights of existing residents is left to last. Is this a Council led decision? I have contacted Rob Butler's office to see if he can help. Answers to questions would be nice.
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.
