Corner of Crendon Road & Frogmore Lane, Long Crendon

Reported via mobile in the Road surface category anonymously at 19:23, Monday 21 June 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Thames Water did some work a few weeks ago (they installed temporary traffic lights in order to do so). Upon completion they 'resurfaced' the road to an extremely poor and dangerous standard. Already a number of potholes have appeared in the surface. Rather than re-tarmac properly, they simply filled with chippings and bitumen,which have loosened and spread across the road making this corner a slip hazard for road vehicles. Furthermore, Thames Water came back and did works on the opposite carriage and due to poor initial repairs led to the side of the road heading towards Sandy Lane to collapse causing further very dangerous conditions. This has been a problem for at least 3/4 weeks. Thames Water should be made to come back and properly resurface the road with proper tarmac and make full repairs to the collapsed inside edge of the corner. Genuine question, does anyone from Bucks Council inspect road repairs made by 3rd parties and utility providers and whether they are still intact 6 months later? If not, its something that could save taxpayer money and perhaps instill a repair right first time requirement of utility providers.
