Deep and dangerous hole beside the road

Reported in the Pothole category by Simon Jenkins at 14:57, Sun 14 October 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

My first photo shows a deep and unguarded hole (c1.5 metres deep) very close to the highway on the south side of Woolstone Road some 15m from Bridge Cottage, heading out of Uffington. The second photo shows its location when it had a guard around it. I reported this 18 months ago under Council ref 790024 and the response was 'Thanks for reporting this issue. This manhole cover is the responsibility of a service company and we have let them know. Posted by Oxfordshire County Council at 18:13, Mon 15 May 2017' Nothing has happened since then and I would be grateful if you would take this up urgently with the service company before a person or horse breaks a leg or worse.

Council ref: ENQ18817704
