Large scale loss of road surface in numerous wide patches across New Road.

Reported via mobile in the Road surface category anonymously at 13:26, Thursday 13 April 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4434575.

The surface of New Road at the bend near entrance to Barn Court has deteriorated rapidly in the last month. There are now numerous large areas where the surface has gone and trenches are forming. The gravel from the broken surface has been strewn to the gutters and pavements. This needs an urgent fix as it is very busy and will deteriorate further in very short time. Since this road was recently (within last 2 years) resurfaced, I'd suggest that the last job was not completed adequately.

  • 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.
