Posted by Oxfordshire County Council at 14:09, Thu 27 September 2018, and a defect raised
I drive this road nearly every day. When behind a car driving at 60, i have to pull back as you just know whats going to happen. Car in front swerves madly out of control, as a result of sink hole. This has been reported in september, so far 1 sign has been erected and a couple of lines drawn on the road. As this is a bend in the road and national speed limit. It not how but when a major accident will happen. I can see a head on collsion coming, please sort this out. Rural location, ice on road during winter, sharp bend in road, generally a fast road = Very dangerous - Come on South Oxford Council, 4 reports when are you going to fix this road, after a major accident?

This is still a major problem. Given the severity of this hidden danger I would question the lack of apparent concern from the authority. Lives are quite literally at risk here and I urge the authority to take action and prioritise this repair.

Despite works supposedly being scheduled there is no indication of when that is likely to happen - this was first reported over 4 months ago and is still outstanding. As someone who regularly uses this stretch of road I know to slow right down but many do not - and we are lucky that there has not been a more serious accident although many have been caught out. The fact that it is also on a bend increases the danger and the council should make its repair a priority.
