Reported via mobile in the Road surface category anonymously at 16:18, Sun 12 November 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5202285.
Further to my fault report 5185168 I received an update that the problem had been fixed. I was in the area today so revisited. As you can see from the pictures above the work done is of very poor quality, does not fully resolve the matter and has already started to deteriorate.
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.
