2 inch gully, 18" wide across the road
Reported in the Carriageway Defect category by John Blackie at 16:47, Monday 19 June 2017
Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later
A trench was dug for Keble Homes right across the road. The backfill has failed so that the top of the backfill tarmac has dropped 2 inches. The edges are sharp and steep. This means that any small wheel bicycle is at grave risk as it crosses the gulley. Larger wheeled bikes crossing at a slight angle are at risk of a puncture, damaged wheel and/or of being thrown off in the path of traffic in both directions. Buses bump and crash across, most likely shortening the life of their suspensions and definitely giving the passengers a severe jolt every time. The problem has not been included in the recent Cumnor Hill repairs. The problem has been there for a couple of months. Photos are attached to show the location and the condition of the road at this point.
