Half way down Barrack Hill

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category by Nigel Cox at 19:34, Wed 3 May 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4514283.

Large pothole which has been there for a long while. Reported to Bucks Council some months ago but nothing done to repair it. Hole 0.45x0.27x0.15m (deep) Hole is directly on tyre path on a single track road, to way road. Hole so deep that local residents have put bricks in to make the hole safer for local traffic rather than wrecking their tyres and rims. Bricks in place so long that silt /gravel/road debris now partially fills hole. Bucks Highways Dept have recently been in the area and through the village marking potholes for repair but didn't come up Barrack Hill to mark this one and this pothole remains unmarked and dangerous. It needs repair please.

  • 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 creates 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.
