Hi there, There is a pot hole (one of 3) on the cliveden road, Taplow that you are aware of as it’s been marked and cones are in the pothole to help drivers see it and hopefully miss it. However the pothole is on a corner and it is an accident waiting to happen. If there is any priority in fixing pot holes please highlight this one. I’d love to stop and take a photo for you but that road is just too fast and dangerous to do so. The what3words for the location are flank torn regard
Thank you Polly
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.
