Extremely poor road surface

Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 10:45, Wednesday 18 March 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The road surface, hedges and verges outside Thornton college are in a reprehensible state. I recently put a report in about this and was told that repairs had been carried out. this is simply not true. No repairs have been done here for so long that the road is disintegrating. This is really dangerous, as i mentioned previously this road carries an astonishing amount of traffic with the private school here and is an accident waiting to happen. The hedges are encroaching on the road, the verge has collapsed in parts and the road itself is ridged and buckled causing cars to weave around and approach the blind bend in the middle of the road. When an accident inevitably occurs here it is likely that children will be involved, please can something be done about this.
