On A413 leaving Aylesbury in direction of Buckingham, section of road between Fields farm and Weedon turning

Reported anonymously at 16:36, Sat 19 June 2021

Another serious accident (head-on involving 2 cars & at least three injured) has occurred at this exact same spot in the wet conditions yesterday (18/06/2021), resulting in the road being closed. This is now the fourth time I have brought this to the council's attention, will it take a death before you take action & who will be explaining the reasons for the lack of action to the bereaved families? Saying it is currently on your works program will not be much consolation when you have know about this for years! Here is one of my previous reports of the issue from 03/03/2020: Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 09:10, Tue 3 March 2020 The road surface just after Fields Farm in the direction of Whitchurch is exceedingly dangerous in wet conditions. The camber/profile of the road results in two "tramlines" of water and due to the worn surface, creates aquaplaning in this area. Specifically as vehicles go up the slight incline, beyond the farm entrance and approach the left hand curve, just before the small corrugated iron shed/barn in the field on the Weedon side. Many vehicles have crashed in this area and the hedge on the Weedon side of the road has many gaps and broken vehicle parts where cars have crashed into it. Yet another car crashed and overturned at this point on Friday 28th February. I regularly use this section of road and have seen many accidents at this spot, all when it was wet. Parts of the road between Aylesbury and Whitchurch had the surface redone a while ago, but this particular section was left out, even though I stopped on my bicycle and pointed out and reported this issue, at this precise spot, to a surveyor on site shortly before this resurfacing took place. I also pointed out this defect as part of the 50mph speed limit consultation that was recently carried out for this section of road. How many time is this going to be ignored and will BCC be accepting responsibility when this defect causes a fatality?
