Along the Risborough Road going into Little Kimble, just before the private road turning for the Bushey Leys Cottage

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 15:49, Monday 8 January 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5414869.

This pot hole is massive and has sharp edges which easily punctured my tyre and caused lot's of damage, I remember this pot hole being next to (or close too) a telephone pole.

This pot hole is very deep and swallowed my whole foot (please refer to pictures).

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.
