Very large pothole

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 14:26, Wednesday 25 January 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later

Past the Betsy wynne going out of the village. It has already been reported apparently and someone has marked the edges with spray paint. Unfortunately they failed to put a reflective cone on or in front of it. The yellow 'no parking' cone on the pavement does not appear in the dark. Therefore myself- and apparently others - have now hit it in the dark and burst our tyres. I will file a compensation claim once fitted tomorrow.

  • 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.
