Broad Lane, Holtspur junction with A40

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 15:07, Saturday 13 February 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

A pot hole 2 ft wide and 6 inches deep at the junction of Broad Lane and A40 Holtspur.

Please take extreme caution. On 11/02/2021 at 18:00 Turning left out of Broad Lane onto A40 this pot hole ripped chunks out of both my drivers side front and rear tyres. I now need two new tyres and both alloys are scuffed. Will not know if there is further damage to the wheels until the tyres come off.

I can see that this has been reported a few times in the past and has deteriorated to the point there is now a deep trench some 2ft wide.

This is only going to get worse and cause further damage to vehicles and presents a real risk for accidents.

I shall be asking the local authority to cover the cost of repairs to my vehicle.
