24 by 12 inch pothole getting worse

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 13:53, Mon 23 December 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Pothole getting worse with 2 additional smaller ones about 3 metres away. People are filling it with things to avoid damaging cars. As it is close to a bend people come round and are almost in it by the time they see it. Currently has a plastic bollard in it. This is a hazard to cars and increasingly to pedestrians as some vehicles mount the verge to avoid it. See the tyre tracks in attached photo. All three potholes appear to be in the line of rainwater flow which comes down from spinfield and usually settles near pump station between 13 and 15 Harwood Road. Suggest this is investigated when fixing as it is a recurring problem.
