31” long 5” deep pot hole directly outside 207 Blind Lane Flackwell Heath
Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 21:05, Tuesday 4 April 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4399338.
No warnings and has been reported numerous times, wrote of my nearly new tyre and broke part of my suspension Sunday evening 11pm after driving 350 miles from Scotland. Will it take someone being thrown off their motorcycle or push bike and serious injury to get it fixed?
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.
