Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Series of longitudal potholes & subsidence 18" from carriage edge on side going into Aylesbury.

A series of oblong potholes has opened up and getting larger with every frost.

The side of the road is showing subsidence too.

Motorists are trying to go to the edge of the road to avoid holes, there are bollards in the centre.

The side of the road is earth, now deep with wheel ruts, right next to a deep natural drainage gully.

Please repair ASAP, this has caused a car to go into the gully in previous years, it's enough to contain a small car.

Cyclists will hit the holes and either swerve into cars or go into the gully.

Liability costs will be enormous as it has been reported twice.

  • Holes getting deeper and longer, make the car shudder.

    The side of the road is subsiding g into the soft, non chr stone ditch.

    Yet this has been assessed as not needing repair.

    Unbelievable, the centre bollardsforce traffic into these defects. Dangerous for cyclists.
