Along the padbury to Steeple Claydon road, directly outside the entrance to one of the horse fields.

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 21:51, Sun 28 October 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

There is a pothole/sinkhole which has been in the road for over 6 months. The council came out and marked the hole up, they then had road closures in place for 3 days repairing other potholes along the same stretch of road. But ignored this particular hole. Someone then came out and put signs and cones up around the hole which had been run over and have now completely gone. I personally think that something needs to be done about this now! I drive up this road up to 10 times a day due to being a bus driver and I am getting very fed up with having to try and avoid this hole, as a lot of the time its not always possible!! I believe that this particular hole is dangerous as it is not far from a corner so it is not always safe to have to apply the brakes harshly. Also it is causing a danger to other road uses having to avoid the hole!
