Bayleys Bottom HP10 8PD

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 14:15, Tue 1 December 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The original potholes were reported several times before August 2020. Temporary fillings were put in some of the potholes in September 2020 with cones indicating where the work wasn't fully completed. The temporary fillings are now beginning to break up leaving more potholes as shown in the photos. When the road floods as it often does (see photo from 12th November), these potholes will not be visible and could serious damage to cars, cycles or even pedestrians wading through the floods (we had to on the 12th Nov.). Would it not be more economical if the contractors hired to do temporary repairs did a permanent repair? Now, presumably there will be another temporary repair adding even more to the eventual cost.
