Roadway o/s #26 HP92ER

Reported in the Pothole category by Jim Azord at 17:58, Wed 13 June 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Innumerable potholes (6 months old at least) stretching from directly o/s this address all along this 'alleyway' north to Maxwell Road due to repeated traffic using this 'ratrun' to avoid traffic congestion at Maxwell Rd j/w Amersham Rd. Tarmac originally laid too thin on a concrete underbed is completely failing. Given that this 'ratrun' situation is only set to worsen when the new A355 Relief Road 'roundabout' debacle happens for ANYONE coming from Maxwell Road area who might dare to want to travel northbound on the A355, I suggest you spend some of your £4.4M on relaying this, and while you are at it please consider putting some traffic calming measures in supported by a strictly enforced 20mph limit as well before a child is killed.

  • Numerous potholes still causing vehicles to lurch towards children on the footpath using this route to travel to St Mary All Saints School.

    Cars mounting pavement (at speed) to avoid potholes

  • STILL not fixed. The roadway has completely failed, and the narrow path is now following suit from being driven on. Cars driving on path to avoid potholes are passing 6" from the end of my driveway at 20-30mph. This is an auditable record of our community complaints about a popular foot and cycle route to St Mary's Primary School and the Curzon Community Centre. When a child is seriously injured questions will be asked. I have lost count of the twisted ankles I have suffered in the dark, and have nearly lost the front of my car twice. SPEND SOME OF YOUR WARCHEST AND GET THIS FIXED, PLEASE!
