Travelling from Burtons Lane end of Roughwood Lane, at third passing place just before “no footpath” sign (hidden in trees)

Reported in the Pothole category by Joe Kelleher at 08:17, Tue 22 May 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Huge pothole approx 50cm in diameter and 20cm deep. It has been there for months and is getting progressively worse. It is on left hand side opposite entrance just before “no footpath” road sign. This is particularly dangerous for cyclists but causes problems for traffic trying to pass in this very narrow lane with just a few passing places. It would also be helpful if Roughwood Lane was signed as a single track road with passing places, with a weight limit of say 3.5 tons. Unfortunately Google Maps uses this lane as a recommended route.

    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!
