BADLY failed road surface

Reported via desktop in the Road surface category anonymously at 16:53, Sunday 16 May 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

HUGE pothole, maybe six foot by six foot, by four inches deep, outside China Diner/Clarks Shoes. Ten yards further along, outside WH Smith the road surface is rapidly degenerating.

It is baffling why the Council and Jacobs have let it get to this point. The Google Streetview imagery, taken in April 2019, shows the surface badly deteriorating. The pothole alone, which cannot be avoided, should have been prevented.
