Potholes, especially towards the bottom of Baring Road.

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 07:02, Thu 10 May 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

As this is quite a steep road, with numerous parked vehicles either side, it can get quite hair-raising trying to avoid the potholes. They are now becoming really broken up and deep. I think some patches were tried, but unfortunately they have all broken up again.

    Fed up with potholes – we are too!
    Government funding cuts and pressures from other services such as social care means there isn’t enough money to pay for all the work which needs doing on our roads.
    However, a new single council for Buckinghamshire would save at least £18m per year – money which the new council could decide to put into more road resurfacing.
    The Government wants to hear your views on the plans. Visit to have your say – it only takes a minute!

  • The road is now becoming a complete and utter nightmare! More like dodgems than a road, resulting in my wheels becoming buckled!! Please sort out it’s dangerous having to dodge the holes by coming on to the other side of the rod and running the risk of being hit by somebody coming down!!
