Extremely large and deep pothole

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 08:23, Thursday 5 March 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

This pothole (approx 50cm wide, nearly a metre long and 7-10 cm deep) has been present on this road for weeks. It is getting bigger by the day and there is more loose road surface as the weeks go by. It is located on the bend of the road causing vehicles to pull out to avoid it. In this instance due to oncoming traffic I was unable to avoid and required 2 new tyres. This will almost certainly end up causing a serious collision that could be avoided entirely if the road was maintained.
