Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4558722.
Having been previously repaired, the cheap inadequate repair has failed and there is now an extremely dangerous pothole on the inside of the bend. It is approx 3ft in length and 5in deep. This is causing vehicles to cross the broken line and will result in a head on collision. The defect needs to be repaired properly before some one is injured. What3 words spoil.phones.slept
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.

Please be assured, we will continue to monitor the area in line with our Highways Safety Inspection Policy.
