Close to the entrance to Burnham Beeches Hotel

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 10:57, Thu 9 November 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5192024.

There is a horrible stretch of road for about 100 metres outside the hotel where the road has failed due to constant heavy construction vehicles that the road is not intended for. Each time a pothole is repaired a new one is created as the road continues to break up. When the road is wet with puddles these holes are impossible to see or avoid.

  • 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.
