Five Acre Wood

Reported via mobile in the Road surface category anonymously at 12:57, Monday 17 April 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4450540.

The road surface is appalling. There are small potholes and the top surface in most places has been completely destroyed. We received a letter on 21/06/21 which indicated that the road was to be repaired during the summer. Then on 7/12/21 we received another letter stating that due to shortage of HGV drivers and some ingredient shortages the road would be repaired in the spring of 2022. It is now nearly two years later and the road still remains in a terrible condition. Please let me know when you intend to repair our road. It is getting worse every day and there are now trip hazards to those crossing the road.

  • 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.
