Road collapse getting worse!

Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 14:47, Sunday 17 May 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The road collapse is getting worst however the warning sign has recently been removed? Cars that are travelling at 50 mph are hitting this dip without any warning and are either bottoming out or swinging in to the oncoming lane. Please advance the repair of this very dangerous piece of road and in the interim install appropriate signage and bollards to mark the danger point.

  • Please can you re-install the warning signage highlighting the collapsed road as soon as possible.. Cars who are unfamiliar with this serious road defect and travelling at over 50mph are swinging out to avoid the dip into the oncoming lane. You have just completed a programme of repairing all the potholes in Hedgerley Lane. Why was this major health and safety problem not resolved at this time?
