Mk17 9pp (51.9849231, -0.6540081)

Reported via mobile in the Potholes category anonymously at 10:21, Wednesday 23 June 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 358257.

On Mon 21st June 2021 lunchtime we were driving to Woburn Centerparcs from Milton Keynes and as I drove down from the A5 to Leighton Road my car hit a large pot hole which ripped my tyre. It was really dangerous and we were very lucky that we weren’t hurt due the tyre damage. Luckily the RAC came out and we managed to get our spare tyre put on but not the best start to our holiday. I’m really disappointed as to why this wasn’t fixed despite so many other people reporting how dangerous the location of this pothole is. I will be putting in a claim for the cost of my new tyre. Please be careful when driving here.
