Forest Way, Micklefield, HP137JF. From jct with Woodside Rd, HP137JE up hill on the bend up to the entrance of the pre school nursery

Reported via desktop in the Road surface category anonymously at 19:35, Fri 30 April 2021

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later

The road surface has failed on both sides of the road and the centre of the road. some potholes are several inches deep varying from 2 to 5 inches approx and anything up to 2ft across. It is not possible to pass in either direction without hitting several holes, in order to avoid those that will cause damage to vehicles it is neccessary to travel uphill on a bend on the wrong side of the road zig zagging around the holes. In addition to the uneven surface and holes there is a lot of gravel and stones from the holes all over the road reducing grip with unpredictable increased risk of skidding. This road is the access to a nursery and next to the access to a school playing field so is used by children and parents. The current condition of the surface falls below the required standard of adequate grip and stopping ability of any road especially this close to a school.
