A large number of potholes ranging from 300mm diameter to 800mm diameter and between 40mm and 125mm deep.

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 14:19, Sunday 15 September 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

I recently wrote to Rbwm requesting permission to repair the potholes on my Rd, this was denied stating that one of your accredited contractors had to carry out this work. It appears that one of your accredited contractors have attempted to repair some of the holes. I am shocked at how sub standard and shoddy these repairs are. They actually repaired half of one long pothole ( see photos). They did not clean out the loose stones, dirt and dust out of the holes before filling them. No emulsion adhesive was used before filling and the amount of material used to fill the holes was about half of what was needed. If this is the standard of your accredited contractors then it’s time to get new ones. I am currently appointing a legal team to advise me on my right to be provided with a adequate road to drive considering the amount of council tax I pay. This problem has persisted for many years and a am minded to take legal action against RBWM for neglecting this road for so long. I will also be publishing the these letters and my complaints in the newspapers as I think the residents of Windsor and Maidenhead should know how well we are looked after by the Council.
