Amersham Road, just past Inkerman Drive when heading towards Amersham

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 15:42, Wed 31 May 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4615901.

'Failed Road Surface' signs are now in this area but I would like to ask when this situation will be addressed? I had hoped the signs regarding roadworks from May to July on Amersham Road would be fixing the road surface but this work seems to be more to do with laying utilities. The failed surface covers at least half the width of the road making it impossible to avoid (although drivers are swerving about in an attempt to do so). It is on a bendy section of road and in an area where visibility of the road surface can be bad with the tree coverage and shadows cast on the road. This needs to be dealt with urgently before it causes some serious accidents.

Updates

  • 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.
