Junction of Kings Close and Kings Road, Chalfont St Giles

Reported via desktop in the Road surface category anonymously at 14:36, Wed 16 December 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Following the recent rain and frosts the poorly repaired potholes (up to 150mm deep) and crazed road surface are yet again posing a serious hazard to both motorists and cyclists. It is very easy to skid on this part of the road when wet and the holes fill with water making them difficult to see in the dark. As the school bus uses this road this is potentially extremely dangerous. I would suggest that the road surface be properly repaired since several previous attempts at filling these potholes have all failed as soon as it rains heavily.

  • Despite having been reported a considerable time ago (months!) this area continues to deteriorate to the extent that there now several additional potholes 100mm plus deep. The whole area needs proper resurfacing not a dollop of tarmac thrown in which deteriorates in no time. When it rains the holes cannot be seen and there are enough now that it is impossible to turn in or out of Kings Close without driving down at least one of them. As Kings Road is used for the school bus poses an additional hazard to the schoolchildren on the bus.
