Drayton Road at the crossroads, MK17 0BH

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 10:48, Saturday 11 January 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

I currently am a resident of this village. I have lived here all my life. I travel to work every weekday as I have a full time job. This means I have no choice but to drive over possibly one of the worst damaged roads in the entirety of Buckinghamshire. This has been going on for absolute months that I cannot even give you an accurate time scale of when this began. The damage to our road from the crossroads leading out of the village is so extremely severe, cars are trying to swerve round them on a blind corner it is that dangerous. It is causing a huge amount of damage to our cars because even when you do have the time to try and avoid the damage and potholes you can't. There is an excessive amount of road damage on BOTH SIDES of the road. I personally think it is an absolute embarrassment to us residents who have had to put up with this for so long! I also think that it is an absolute disgrace that nothing has been done yet. If you drove on our road you would be completely shocked at the severity. I am imploring you to make our road a serious priority. As a resident I am extremely angry that not even spray paint has gone round each major piece of damage. Just because this is a small quiet residential village does not mean we should be put at the bottom of the work pile. I'd like to see you try and drive over our roads and see how it feels to have damage to YOUR car!!!! Why should we as residents be forced to fork out money to pay for repair of our vehicles when NO ONE is helping to fix our roads. PLEASE SEND SOMEONE ROUND HERE ASAP!!!!!!
