Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4609047.
Sent in request back in November 2022 for the road to be reviewed for portholes and level of the road to be fixed. Was told the request would be looked into in the new year and still waiting.
This needs to be fixed we have massive hgv lorries, tractors, cyclists and people walking up this road. It is used multiple times a day and is a short cut for a lot of vehicles.
This road is not safe for vehicles and needs to be raised. Vehicles have to be safe for the road this is why everyone has to pay for tax, mot and insurance. But doesn’t seem that the council thinks about the road being safe for the vehicles and people.
We have seen people trip over due to the portholes and the uneven level of the road.
It is the whole road.
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.
