As previously reported, there is a poorly installed manhole

Reported in the Road surface category by Peter Routledge at 11:26, Tue 11 August 2020

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later

The manhole is hit by over 30% of cars day and night. This is an impact on our lives and neighbours. You haven't made any response and I now put AVDC on notice that I will take appropriate legal action. The residents of this area, including the appalling New Road junction have put up with years of "amateur" road planning leading to a poorer quality of life. We intend to sue for substantial damages.

  • This really is an actual problem which has impact in peoples lives. It is not the usual "fix my street" rant about trees overhanging pavements or unkempt grass verges. Please attend asap as the manhole is damaged and probably will fail!
