Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4997350.
This morning this pothole burst my tyre.
I have video evidence.
This is going to cost me a lot of money and time to get new tyres.
Thanks to the Coucil for not fixing pot holes in a timely manner. Not happy with the council.
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.
