About 5 meters of solid potholes never fixed forcing cars into middle of the road

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 14:41, Fri 4 May 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

There are a series of potholes along the side of the road in the direction from Uxbridge Road towards Black Park car park. These either force cars into the middle of the road or risk damage to the drivers who do not know about them. I have reported these multiple times before but they are never fixed. Please make sure your inspector considers the chain of potholes, to save me having to submit 5-8 different reports.

    Fed up with potholes – we are too!
    Government funding cuts and pressures from other services such as social care means there isn’t enough money to pay for all the work which needs doing on our roads.
    However, a new single council for Buckinghamshire would save at least £18m per year – money which the new council could decide to put into more road resurfacing.
    The Government wants to hear your views on the plans. Visit to have your say – it only takes a minute!

  • Some of the smaller potholes have subsequently been fixed but the large ones - the ones I have to swerve to avoid - are still there.
