Section of tarmac completely worn-much lower than main road

Reported in the Roads/highways category by Adam Battrick at 16:35, Wed 11 July 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

A long section of tarmac is worn and is substantially lower than the main road. This is creating two main problems: 1) When it rains the water can't flow to the drain without flooding this area of road and the driveway entrance to the houses of "The Walk". 2) Entering and exiting the driveway of The Walk is difficult due to the drop in tarmac. The problem is becoming worse as the section is becoming deeper and longer and is now starting to expose the edge of a manhole cover as shown in the photos. The area is located directly over the access to Lime Tree Cottage, Ramblers Cottage and Renecros Cottage and directly opposite Honeypot Cottage.

  • State changed to: No further action

  • Please explain why this has been changed to "no further action"? A repair has not taken place and this issue causes flooding because the water can not reach the drain. The part of the road is lower by a considerable amount that is hard to see in the photos. An actual update would be useful! Thanks.
