Large and dangerous pothole

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 09:20, Thu 3 May 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

There is a substantial, long and deep pothole on the approach to this junction.

This is a junction with a history of serious and fatal collisions.

The defect is of a size and nature that is likely to cause serious injury to a motorcyclist and will cause substantial distraction to all road users as they approach this junction.

This is a dangerous breach of the council's statutory to maintain the road network. A failure of this size and nature can only mean that it was not adequately assessed. As well as quick remedial action, there needs to be an investigation as to why it was allowed to deteriorate to this extent.

  • Why has been allowed to get so bad, we just had to make an emergency stop to try and avoid it. This needs attention before there is a serious accident on a bike or in a car
