Numerous deep and wide potholes causing danger

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 17:23, Tue 24 April 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Several deep and wide potholes- many more photos than allowed here. In all we have around 30 potholes, 10 really serious ones, some up to 3 feet wide and 4-5 inches deep that are now causing car damage and a danger to pedestrians. Council comes when we ask but they don't do a full job and there is no preventative work done to stop small potholes getting bigger. One time they came and repaired just 2. The misuse of resources (all that manpower being sent out to do 2 potholes, then coming back again another time if we keep asking) is shocking!

  • Either someone at Bucks CC is deeply unintelligent or thinks that I am. Yesterday I received an email saying that my enquiry had been resolved (Numerous deep and wide potholes reported 3 times in 2 weeks - last incident number 40077004). I regard something as being "Resolved" as being "Fixed". Today the potholes remain, as big and as damaging and as dangerous as they were yesterday. Not Fixed or Resolved in any way at all.

  • Potholes are now more like ravines! Need a 4 wheel drive to get down our lane - and I don’t have a 4 wheel drive.

  • I had a puncture several days ago because of these potholes and am putting in a claim to the council. We have been asking for months for help but no response!
