SL9 8TH - Layters Green Lane, near Flint Cottage

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category by Ian Ducker at 16:17, Tue 24 October 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5133125.

I reported these two, deep potholes on May 2nd 2023. You reported that your team had inspected them and you committed to returning to make the necessary repairs within 6-8 weeks. That would have been by early July at the latest. It is now almost 6 months since first reported, you haven't made the repairs and the potholes are now dangerously deep. In a car, you would probably puncture a tyre and possibly damage a rim. On a bicycle, these potholes are likely to cause serious injury.

Updates

  • 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.
