Mains water leak left side of hill turning out of Burnham Beeches Golf Club .To the right running down the hill a natural spring . Has created a large pot hole close to drain located to main golf club entrance. Please can the drain be cleared .Large pot hole around 100cm by 75 cm repaired .The mains water leak that has been there for a good while repaired .It is going to freeze there making that section of road dangerous as the gritters never come down that far .Also the leak is causing the edge of the road up Lane to erode .It is a very busy Lane and I am worried that there will be an accident there .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.
