Oxfordshire County Council has not adequately maintained the road, and failed to provide any warning signs or notice or spray markings of the offending pothole, despite the fact it appears to have been previously submitted on fixmystreet.oxfordshire.gov.uk in November 2017 – please see council reference 814683 https://fixmystreet.oxfordshire.gov.uk/ report/ 1147032

  • Have had the same problem with this pothole! It’s huge. I hit it about 30mph and it’s blew my tire! At midnight. No road markings for the pot hole! In a location with a poor phone signal it took me over two hours to get Rescued! Have had to replace the rear passenger tyre! Costing £70! The size of that pot hole just shows how long it has been there! First time using the road and never will drive on that again!
