Pothole - caused flat tyre
Reported via iOS in the Pothole category by Julie Creswell at 10:13, Friday 15 September 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4996739.
Driving up Windsor Road carefully I hit a pot hole that made my car go bang.
I now have a flat tyre.
Waiting for rescue.
I had to ask my client to come and collect her dogs.
This pot hole has severely damaged my tyre. Waiting for rescue to see if it has damages my alloys.
Urgent fix on road required. The council should pay for a new tyre as there are markings on the road that are waiting for pothole repair.
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.
