Large, deep potholes

Reported via iOS in the Pothole category anonymously at 06:59, Thu 4 May 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4515134.

On this section of road are 3 very large deep potholes. They are difficult to avoid due to the roads corners, and a narrowing of the road at this point. The holes are deep enough to cause a serious jolt to the vehicle likely to cause tyre/wheel/suspension damage. This section is largely potholes linked by former potholes that have been poorly repaired. This whole section of road needs resurfacing.

In addition, there are numerous smaller potholes in this area, particularly exiting Ford village heading up to the the junction with Ford Road. All of these need repairs.

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 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.
