Unsatisfactory repairs

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category by Roger VJ Lacey at 13:38, Wednesday 25 January 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later

I have already written to complain about the unsatisfactory repairs carried out in Main Street on Sunday. Several of the potholes filled outside our property are now the same as prior to repair, with clippings all over the road. Your latest e-mail received this morning, indicates that an inspector is coming to look, would it be possible to arrange a meeting with them to discuss the way forward. Please note that the Grendon Facebook page is awash with dissatisfied council tax payers over the issue. I await your reply. Kind regards Roger Laceyn

  • This has been passed to the local area technician to investigate the enquiry/issue regarding a pothole/road surface.

    During winter months we receive a very high number of reports regarding potholes or a poor road surface, it's easy to assume that potholes are formed due to roads being poorly maintained but that is not usually the case. There are many factors that can cause potholes, particularly during the winter months when water seeps in through cracks in the road surface, collecting underneath and when the water freezes, it expands and forces up the road surface in through cracks in the road surface.

    Our priority is always the safety of road users, so in some cases during busy periods a permanent repair is not always possible immediately. However, temporary repairs are a way to ensure the area is safe until such times as we can return to make a permanent repair.
