Hedgerley Lane by Menagerie Wood

Reported in the Road surface category by Geoffrey Buckman at 16:48, Thu 31 October 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

ROAD COLLAPSE.!!! A significant length of road has collapsed covering the whole of one side of the carriageway. Travelling at less than 50mph, my son, my wife and I have all experienced the impact of the undersides of our cars dropping down and hitting the road. SUGGEST THIS DANGEROUS ROAD IS FIXED OR CLOSED!!! Your Non-Transparent process fro "prioritising" means that some small pot holes have been fixed on this road, while this death-trap remains untouched!!!! I have taken action - I have reported it twice and I have also sprayed warning marks on the road in August to help others avoid this dangerous road failure potentially causing of a serious accident that BCC could be complicit in causing... MEANWHILE BCC HAS DONE NOTHING !!!!! PLEASE CLOSE ROAD OR FIX IT - DON'T SIT BEHIND YOUR STANDARD EXCUSE OF "ITS IN THE PRIORITY LIST, BUT WE CAN' T TELL WHEN IT IS FIXED. !*!*!*!*!*!!!!!!!!!
