Old Rectory Lane

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5020702.
For the last few days, there have been lorries with a massive load coming down this lane. The cabins on the back overhang. They are impossible to get around so all the residents are having to reverse back up with windy narrow road dangerously. I believe the lorries are delivering to Martin Bakers or perhaps something else, but they do not have to take this tiny road. It is making residents and carers late for appointments, and causing chaos. I'm shocked there are no escort vehicles for the lorries, as they are just so big for this tiny lane. Please can this be looked into. 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.
