Large area of uneven road that is dangerous when hit at speed

Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 11:22, Tue 10 September 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The huge uneven area of road is very obvious- it is on the left hand side of the road about half way between leaving the village of westcott and the bend by the farm. It is on the left hand side of the road as you leave the village. It makes a a huge bang when you drive over it and is dangerous if hit at speed

  • Your report states that the defect doesn't meet the criteria for immediate intervention. I disagree!! Drivers are now driving on the wrong side of the road to avoid the defect which is VERY dangerous for any on-coming traffic coming round the corner. I have driven over this defect under the speed limit and my car has bottomed out, thankfully not casuing any immediate damage to my car. I would be grateful if you could re-evaluatate.

  • Only part of the uneven road has been filled- it’s needs to be filled across a much wider area
