Whole road substantially detriorated (Fall fitnesses)

Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 15:03, Mon 13 July 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The road surface has deteriorated and is unsafe. Whilst out on Sunday witnessed a novice cyclist fall due to the road condition, but thankfully travelling slow so not seriously injured.

When travelling down hill out of Mentmore the tree coverage and sunlight mask the road leaving potholes and substandard surface dangerous to motorbikes and cyclists alike whilst not pleasant to drive on either.

Whilst cyclist try to avoid falling they are often travelling on the wrong side of the road to avoid the worst parts. This continues for the majority of this stretch whilst road has fallen away round the corner.

  • Blatant discrimination to vulnerable road users such as leisure cyclist. I fully appreciate the Village do not want BC sanctioned races which I support, but the surface is dangerous and forcing users on the wrong side of the carriage way for large sections.
