Pothole appearing again around drain/ironworks - Fulmer Road. Clearly poor quality workmanship or quality of materials. This has been reported multiple times and left ignored (screenshot from Google Maps in September 2021 shows how bad it gets). Was filled - assume by temporary loose tarmac by Bucks Council and now opening up once again. Is dangerous and should be fixed properly. If a cyclists tyre goes into this, or they swerve to avoid it, it could injure them, or worse.
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.
