Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4856875.
Severe congestion in this area due to road closure. Diversion route not signed properly and congestion in Bursts Lane due to parked cars; why is Parking not prohibited in this area??? Dangerous and unsuitable Diversion Route. Were TVP Traffic Management unit consulted and authorised this closure? Could temporary ATR not be used? Please expedite this message and visit the scene to observe the chaos? Thank you
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.
