Road failure

Reported in the Pothole category by Daniel Pollock at 19:15, Wed 23 May 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

A long stretch on road has degraded to such an extent that it's particularly dangerous for anyone on a bicycle - and forces cyclists out into overtaking traffic. I suspect this council has a reactive policy rather than a proactive inspection & maintenance policy. This section has been in this condition for some time.

  • This is a terrible surface for cyclists, and it forces them out into the path of cars in order to avoid this terrible surface.
