Hard standing verge surface breaking up

Reported via mobile in the Road surface category anonymously at 08:22, Wed 20 September 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5012262.

At the edge of the A418 at Scotsgrove cottages is a tarmac hard standing section on the verge. Where the residential track leading to the rear of scotsgrove cottages is located the surface of the hard standing as you pull off the A418 to enter the track is breaking down in a number of places. This makes for a dangerous surface for all vehicles pulling on to and off of the A418 at Scotsgrove. The council previously patched a pothole on the verge in 2021 but further degradation to the council owned verge is now occurring and needs repair before winter.

  • 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.
