Back to all reports

Along Station Road coming from Quainton Railway Centre. Most of the houses are on the right side of the road with a cul de sac on the left. The pothole is about 25 yards before the cul de sac.

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

When travelling down Staion Road from the Railway Centre at night, there are parked cars all down the right hand side due to the houses on that side. This effectively reduces the road to single carriageway. Cycling this road in the dark one evening, I hit the pothole on the near side of the road while I was concentrating on a car coming towards me. I was lucky not to fall off my bike or seriously damaging my front wheel. Cycling the same part of the road this evening in the dark, I was looking out for the pothole and saw it appears to be at least about 6 inches deep and is dangerous if a cyclist was to hit it (as I did). It must also be difficult for cars to avoid it.
