On left hand edge of chiltern avenue, about 15 yards before the junction with Oxford Road

Reported via desktop in the Road surface category anonymously at 13:40, Monday 16 August 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

As you exit Chiltern Avenue, to turn left towards the shop, petrol station and school, you manoeuvre into the left hand 'lane' to turn left. Invariably the wheel disappears down a drain cover/pothole. If you have not got a firm grip on the steering wheel, the wheel gets wrenched out of your grip. There were a couple of potholes towards the middle of the Chiltern Avenue turning which have been patched but this hole (which was, in my opinion, worse and more of a safety issue) was ignored, I assume because it is around a drainage cover and therefore requires more work to remedy But it is very disturbing.
