Not so much of a pothole more a large area (1m) of sunken tarmac

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 22:49, Fri 7 September 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

Large area of sunken tarmac that caused my suspension to bottom out so hard I was waiting for the shock absorber to explode through my bonnet. It's been there for many months and I've seen comments about it on facebook. Impossible to miss in a car as there's nearly always a car parked on the Malyns Close side of Lower Road meaning you have to drive over it.

  • Still there, not even the man with the white paint has marked it. Impossible to miss it this morning as someone was again parked next to it, at least as I know it's there I can slow to a crawl. It's right next the the footpath exit from the park.

  • This problem is still there, was reported and nothing happenned, local SODC councillor contacted Bob Burgess from OCC and he came and looked at it in early November and told me it would be fixed, 'maybe not before Xmas'. Causes severe shaking of my house and significant noise, not to mention possible damage to vehicles.
