Really big pothole on wexham park lane

Reported in the Pothole category by Satpal Virdee at 10:20, Sun 16 December 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

I am writing to complain about a pot hole on Wexham Park Lane which lead i was unfortunately unable to dodge and has subsequently caused a puncture in my tyre and damage to my alloys. Furthermore I was unable to drive and had to change my tyre on a dark country road by myself in the early hours of the morning. I have never seen this pot hole. I live locally and drive down the road on a daily basis and was surprised to have this happened to me. It has cost me approximately £130.00 to have my tyres changed and caused a lot of inconvineance.

  • My car tyre blow up when it hit a pothole on wexham parklane coming from A412, i had to get taxi for my family so they could get home and i had to wait for rac to replace my tyre but not fully sure on the damages on the wheel and rest. My car had to be towed to nearest parking and they cant couldnt replace the tyre yesterday.This need to be sorted asap before someone gets hurts and end up having a serious crash. I am more than happy to take this to media with photos and videos as no one taken this matter further even its has been reported.

  • I am contacting you as I am seeking compensation due to the pothole on Galleons Lane/Wexham Park Lane damaging two of my tyres resulting in me requiring Breakdown assistance on 18th December at approximately 18.20pm. This was particularly stressful as it is a country lane, pitch black, raining and I was on my way to meet the new addition to the family at Wexham Park Hospital which I was unable to due to the incident. I was also unable to take a picture of the pothole as it was pitch black and as it is on a country road it is very narrow which would make this dangerous. I have the AA breakdown report available and have had to purchase two new tyres as a result and also need to get the cars tracking realigned which will also be another cost. with Christmas in a couple of days this has placed great financial pressure on me and would like to be reimbursed ASAP .

    On response I will provide you with further details, I look forward to hearing from you.
