Road subsidence on adverse camber - very dangerous

Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 20:27, Mon 17 September 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

I witnessed a car going within the speed limit coming towards me (towards Great Horwood) and it nearly bounced onto the verge due to the subsidence on adverse camber. This has got significantly worse in the past week and is now very dangerous to drive on. It is only a matter of time before this results in a serious accident.

  • This fault has already been reported but is getting worse and is now extremely dangerous. This is one of the main routes into Milton Keynes which carries very large volumes of traffic and also many lorries. I cannot provide a photo as the road is too busy and I would run the risk of being killed

  • This problem is escalating. For over two months now the road surface has been marked for works, plus a few temporary signs highlight the road surface issue have appeared. Cars are regularly thrown off line, both into and out of opposing traffic, especially those seemingly unfamiliar with the defect, but the ever growing defect. Its an unlighted road, and a spot prone to winter glazing exacerbating accident risks after passing through the waveform surface. Surely it now must qualify for swift remedial action.
