Whole length of frith hill and Ballinger Road

Reported via mobile in the Road surface category anonymously at 11:40, Friday 21 May 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

From the fork at Frith Hill at Great Missenden the whole road surface all the way to Village Road Lee Common is a complete hazard. The road surface has so many deep potholes so close together on both sides of the narrow carriageway. It means everyone is dodging them every few yards which is incredibly dangerous especially for pedestrians and cyclists. The centre of the carriageway on a long stretch of the Ballinger Rd is also so badly damaged that it is effectively like driving an unmade road. As I am sure you know the temporary repairs to individual potholes don’t last any time. PLEASE can you resurface this busy and dangerously hazardous stretch of road urgently. I would not be able to send photos as there are so many potholes but if you send me an email address I will send a video. It is truly a very urgent matter to resolve this please.
