Deep pothole filled with rain

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category by Virginia Carlin at 11:11, Friday 12 May 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4545849.

I have just seen another report on this which has been closed and nothing has been done about it, On Wednesday I hit this pothole and have damaged the two wheels on my car which is now unsafe to drive. I also saw another report where it stated the pothole was due to be filled within 5 days, but this was on the 5th May and it hasn't been done. The pothole is just past 34 Cliveden Road heading South towards Maidenhead. If a motobike driver hits this, I dread to think what will happen, its a complete danger and people are swerving into the other lane to avoid it. Disgraceful.

  • 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.
