Before bollard by the Havelock pub

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category by Kimmy Meeds at 07:43, Saturday 13 March 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

2 potholes

One by the newer block of flats on the side headed towards Wycombe, this one is about 15cm x 20cm and about 10cm deep I have seen a moped driver almost come off his bike after swerving to miss the pothole.

Second and worst one is on the other side of the road, next to a manhole cover near the centre line.

This one is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS

If someone didn't see it because, say it was raining and full of water like today, and they were on a bicycle or mooed/scooter, they would go over the handlebars and be seriously injured.

If I'm driving to town from my home on Kingsmead Road, I can avoid the first one but the second one is in a dangerous place because there is a van that's always parked up, meaning I have to go over the centre line, past the pothole into oncoming traffic that may be unaware that there is such a deep pothole.

I am concerned that the potholes on Kingsmead Road and Abbey Barn Road are never filled in properly, they always reopen.
