Back to all reports

Outside no 12 Blind Lane in the middle of the road. This is not on the main road but on the smaller road (still called Blind Lane) that runs parallel to it and leads into Spring Gardens.

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 18:48, Tuesday 30 July 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

I reported this last night (29.7.19) at 22.10, by 09.04 this morning you had closed it as 'we have now inspected the defect and no planned repair is necessary at this stage'. Did you really send someone out overnight? I very much doubt it. My original report number is 40108369. I am reporting it again as I don't believe it has been checked and I know for a fact you have previously repaired smaller potholes than this in this road as I reported them and they were dealt with. This pothole cannot be avoided while driving along this road, a car's wheels have to go through it (causing a large jolt) as resident's cars are always parked alongside it (see photo). Please, this has to be repaired as there is no means of avoiding it and damage to cars will soon happen. If you look at the close up photo of the pothole carefully you can see a lump of darker tarmac on the edge, this is from where it was previously been repaired. The hole is getting larger every week, please don't just close down this report, it must be repaired. P.S. I'm bloody minded and tenacious so closing it down as 'no repair is necessary' won't put me off! Thank you.
