So called repairs

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4604297.
For several months this section of Parish Lane has suffered flooding issues that have exacerbated the existing potholes stretching over a significant section of the lane. Last week an 'attempt' to fill one of the deeper holes next to a drain has been made but it is utterly pathetic and looks like it was carried out by a four year old. The repair was a small amount of tarmac plonked next to the drain and is useless. Most of the other holes were ignored. I am astounded that the workers carrying out this work thought they had done a good job. Can a senior council official actually go and have a look at this section of the road and then give us all an honest answer to this question - do you think your colleagues have solved the terrible road surface in Parish Lane?
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.
