Dear Sir / Madam,

Hope you well.

There are multiple some deep dangerous potholes along Bishopstone Road from North Lee side near railway crossing all way to The Harrow Pub, Bishopstone then all way to junction with Portway Road near to Stone.

There are many a lot are very dangerous deep potholes including along edges of road. The potholes are ripping up Tyres on vehicles and damaging vehicles.

Can the team that deals with potholes please go over all the potholes small and large along Bishopstone Road from junction with Portway Road near Stone to railway crossing near North Lee filling in with new tarmac to cover the potholes. Can this work please be done as a matter of urgency as vehicles and their tyres are getting damaged all the time.

Potholes also need attention in terms of wider area of Aylesbury covering hp19, hp20 and Hp21. If this can be actioned as a matter of urgency.

Thank you.

  • 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.
