Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5261757.
The pothole outside 48 Littleworth Road has been reported on numerous occasions and has even been marked up as needing a repair, (see photos) which obviously has not happened. The pothole is getting both deeper and wider and needs repair. When raining it is impossible to see the depth of this pothole so more damage to vehicles is going to occur.
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.
