Outside No's 116/118 Cock Lane

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 18:22, Thursday 14 March 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

Recent road repair is disintegrating rapidly with the current depth of the middle of the road pothole approximately 6-8 inches.

When the Water Board replaced their supply pipeline late last year they discovered that the maps incorrectly located the pipe on the wrong side of the road. This required a temporary filling of the trench outside 116/118 to allow traffic flow, then digging a further trench on the opposite side of Cock Lane. The work was completed and the road resurfaced as indicated in the accompanying photo but only the second hole was dealt with. The initial trench has been progressively disintegrating ever since.

It is difficult to manoeuvre cars onto our forecourts from either direction without encountering the ever increasing pothole. Awareness of the constant thud of traffic passing over the hole is irritating and must be advancing the state of disrepair.

Your assistance would be appreciated.
