Deep sunken depression with sharp leading edge across road

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category by Mrs pia bianchi at 17:49, Fri 14 April 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4440624.

Affects travel in both directions - you have no option but to swerve to the very edge of the road to avoid with both wheels, but always hits one side. Unbalances vehicle and throws it into direction of oncoming cars. Despite bringing this to your attention some months back nothing has been done. In the last 12 months I’ve had 1 deflation, 1 deformed rim, 1 cracked rim on small private car and now my husband has had front suspension failure on our company van (Mercedes Vito) returning home this afternoon. I consider this extremely hazardous - tried calling the emergency tel no to report but office close at 5pm!

  • 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.
