The entire stretch of road.

Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 04:39, Saturday 11 January 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

From the Drayton Parslow crossroads to the Newton Road/Stoke Road turning - the condition of this road is awful. It is utterly riddled with potholes. The surface is incredibly uneven, even more so around some of the bends making it dangerous. Some of the potholes are very large, approx. 2ft long, 1ft wide, 1ft deep - right in the driving track and very difficult to avoid. This road has been rapidly deteriorating over the last 6 months. I have lost 2 hub caps and cracked a rim on my car due to the state of this road. This is a stretch of road that is very busy on a daily basis. It is a connecting route for residents of Drayton Parslow. I personally have to drive the length of it multiple times a day, but it is also used as a rat run to get to the A4146. Individual pothole repairs aren't holding. Is there a plan in place to re-lay the length of road like the road was re-laid from the crossroads to newton Longville?
