The narrow lane with loads of deep pot holes

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category by Lorraine Smith at 06:01, Thu 20 April 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4464158.

This road has had pot holes before. Some have had tarmac put in them over the years and is coming out. HS2 from A413 diversion has made this lane worse, cars? Big lorries are using this cut through Dunsmore to get towards Chequers etc . The lane is single track, very narrow, only passing places. There are 10 pot holes I’ve counted. 2 in particular are very deep and will take tyres out.

Updates

  • 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.
