Multiple potholes and surface failure

Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 07:10, Wednesday 29 January 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Potholes now expanded into a significant surface breakup and failure... Underneath the bridge at the exit from the roundabout heading down station road.

Was previously large deep potholes but the situation is now deteriorating rapidly.

Over the last week individual potholes have grown in size and depth, and have joined together to make a large patch where the road surface is rapidly falling.

It is now no longer possible to avoid the holes and traffic is now having to slow to cross the broken up area.

  • There was an attempted repair but this has failed within days as the contractor did not do the job properly. It still needs fixing.
