Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4842167.
REPORTED SUNDAY 30/07/23 REF 4840561 Many Pot Holes some as deep as 5”. Yesterday, Sunday after heavy Rain, could not see how deep and had to drive through them. My Peugeot has Bonnet Pedestrian Protectors that “explode”like an Air Bag in case of an impact and move the Bonnet up to protect Driver and Pedestrian. These have exploded after hitting the Pot Hole. Went back this Morning to Photograph, met a local person who said they had been like this for Months and in the hedgerow was a Warning Cone all overgrown with weeds, obviously been there a long time! I have more Photos if you require. I feel the Council should reimburse me for the Damage to my Car and I wait your response. Regards, Martin Warn 07848830335
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.
