Travelling down Park Lane, with South Buckinghamshire Golf Course on the left, towards West end Lane. Very large pot hole that I could not avoid due to oncoming traffic. This burst the wall of my left front tyre. I had to pull over just after turning into West End Lane. I had to call out a mobile tyre company to fit a new tyre.
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.

Please be assured, we will continue to monitor the area in line with our Highways Safety Inspection Policy.
