Huge pothole

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 08:08, Sunday 28 January 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5500288.

Huge pothole on the left side of the road coming down on bell lane. You cannot really miss it. Cannot take any picturea as no footpath and cars trying to avoid the potholES. Is there any chance the whole road could be looked at and the potholes fixed? It would be amazing.

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.
