Sunken manhole and hole in road

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 09:39, Wed 6 November 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Despite the same issue being reported as fixed earlier this year, these have reappeared. There are several holes in the road within a 5m radius and a sunken manhole. It is as the junction with Gordon Road and it makes it difficult to avoid the holes if there are cars waiting to pull out of there

  • This is still unrepaired and getting worse by the day. I am surprised that no one has burst a tyre on it. The manhole is right underneath the railway bridge on Gordon Road, Can someone PLEASE update as promised.
