  • I live just off Burwell Dive in Witney. Most of this road is badly damaged by weather and heavy vehicles. It is a major bus route for Oxford. There are some pretty arched canvases on this road and dozens of potholes that are very large and increasing every day. The road was repaired in two areas back in the summer. The road was closed for several days for a proper repair. One of these areas leading to Bleinham Drive is already starting to lose the top coat where larger chunks of fill have been used and is just ripping out. This hole road along Burwell needs to be addressed as lose stones are flying up when the buses pass and they arrive at ten minute intervals making it a very busy road.
