    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!

  • Classified as ‘In progress’ - what’s joke. Get real public servants, progress requires action not glib words to brush aside the problem This particular pothole is now massive. I’d guess it’s currently about 50cm in diameter and 20cm deep. If your vehicle has damaged a wheel/tyre/suspension or you’ve tripped and hurt yourself, then sue/claim all costs back from BCC - they have no excuses as they’ve known about this for months. Good luck if you hit this on a scooter or bicycle. Having recently covered 2000 miles in the Outer Hebrides and Scottish Highlands, where the roads are generally great, what excuses do BCC have? We’re one of the highest tax paying regions and don’t suffer the extremes in weather found in the north. A Spanish visitor asked why we bother with traffic calming when the roads are so poor - he said it was necessary to ‘slalom’ down Curzon Avenue to avoid the defects. Pathetic roads and budget management.
