Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5188059.

There is very bad degradation of the road surface at the middle of the junction of High Street and Vicarage Road Winslow around the Anglian Water drain. It has been deteriorating for many months and is a danger to vehicles and pedestrians. It is the middle of the route for the Winslow Remembrance Day parade next Sunday and there is a danger of a serious accident caused by people tripping over. It needs urgent and immediate attention..

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.
