Following the road resurfacing across the Marston area pebbles were spread on the last stage to reinforce the road surfacing. Those pebbles were to be swept away after a few days of the final stage but this last job has been done very sloppily resulting in a high volume of pebbles remaining not only on the roads but also on the footpaths. These still need to be swept away properly. The whole footpaths are getting damaged by these pebbles and the risk of skidding on the road remains, not counting the risk for young cyclist (Children), It still need sweeping (footpaths and roads) in all places were it was resurfaced with pebbles on the last stage.

Thank you for your enquiry. Oxford Direct Services Highways & Engineering department & the Contractor are aware of this, but due to the persistent hot weather the binder is still ply able and the chippings are still re-bedding themselves in, therefore if the contractor carries out a sweep it will pull off the chippings and cause more damage. Therefore we are just waiting for the cooler weather to complete the sweeping element of the works.
State changed to: No further action
