The pothole is located in between the main road surface/road drain and the layby/bus stop concrete surface in front of Chalfont Clocks. The red arrow shows the concrete edge of the layby created by the pothole which has caused my car tyre to burst when I crossed this particular area in my car on 11 November 2023. I do not know how long the issue has been present but when looking at Google Maps image from Nov 2021 I can see that the hole was previously filled in but now the filling has completely gone.
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.
