Numerous obvious large craters all over the road

Reported via mobile in the Road surface category anonymously at 23:20, Wednesday 6 October 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

I have previously sent images of the failed surface, deep potholes & debris produced by the concrete under the tarmac breaking up resulting in increasingly deeper holes hazardous to vehicles, cycles and pedestrians aswell as high risk of skidding. Issues have been raised by at least 2 other reports, I was informed that repairs would be made & areas were marked in paint. However this was months ago and no action has been taken and the problems have continued to worsen. There are too many defects to detail all of them. The road is becoming impassable and the cold will exacerbate the process. The risk of injury and damage to property from avoiding damage to vehicles and increased skid risk is dangerous. As this has been reported to you multiple times over several months you accept liability for any damage loss or injury arising from neglecting to maintain the road to acceptable safe standards.
