Flood-hit Marlow roads to receive pothole works

FLOOD-HIT areas of Marlow will benefit from road improvements over the coming weeks, according to the leader of Wycombe District Council.

Cllr Richard Scott told a meeting of Marlow town councillors that Bucks County Council’s ‘Jetpatcher’ pothole filling equipment would be deployed across agreed problem areas.

Hotspots include the flood-affected areas of Pound Lane, Gossmore Lane and Mill Road.

In addition, work will be carried out on Wethered Road, Trinity Road and Oaktree Road.

Transport for Buckinghamshire’s Jetpatcher vehicles fill potholes by spraying affected areas with asphalt to fill gaps more quickly than manual repairs.

Yes quick but does NOT last. Not enough is put in the hole so within a week you have a sunken surface.

We've just been 'jetpatched', what an awful mess, there are tiny stones over the entire road, enough to do damage to the paintwork on my car. Who on earth thought up that 'brilliant' idea, and how much is it costing us?

"would be deployed across agreed problem areas. " What's an 'AGREED problem area'?
We had potholes all over the place long before the flooding. Bucks CC really need to apply themselves to this problem. How are you going to feel when a cyclist or motorcyclist is killed as a result of your failure to act - or a car swerves around a hole and kills someone?
