Accident Blackspot... yet another smash

Reported via Android in the Roads/highways category by DAVID ARCHER at 16:18, Sun 28 October 2018

Today another in countless accidents occurred between two vehicles, at the entrance from Eynsham Hall on to A4095, opposite the junction to Park Rd,North Leigh. These accidents happen for many reasons. Speed is a factor from Witney/Hanbrough, driver error is the other brought about by miss judgement of vehicles coming up hill from Witney. There is a 40mph limit. There are mobile speed detection on occasions. This does not work clearly.

This junction needs a mini roundabout, yellow hash count down road markings to the approach to this junction from both directions on A4095. This would make drivers HAVE, to slow down, it would also make priority options in place for drivers pulling out of both Enysham Hall and North Leigh.

Please can this junction be pushed up a list, as someone is going to die soon. The person today had the roof of there car cut, so they could be extracted and hospitalised. Please address this seriously awful accident Blackspot.

  • This afternoon a potlhole on the A4095 took out the front offside tyre of my car resulting in a ripped/burst tyre wall. The tyre failed immediately. This happened at 15:42 today 24 January 2019. I have uploaded the photos. The bill for my tyre repair as result of the hole which approximately 6 inchs deep is £158.62 which I paid the garage. I gave more photos and all the documentation for the bill from Merit Tyres, Witney. Please reimburse me for this incident which is a result of this failure to keep the road in repair. I look forward to hearing from you. Yours Roy Gundavda

  • After noticing this pothole earlier this week I have been driving more slowly to go round it or avoiding this route as the pothole is deep, dangerous and getting bigger. After slowing down to approach the junction by Eynsham Hall/ North Leigh today at approx.16.45, I was forced into the pothole as another vehicle was pulling out of North Leigh towards Long Hanborough. If I had swung out around the pothole the vehicle pulling out of North Leigh would have collided with mine. As a result, my car hit the pothole and this has damaged my car tyre to the extent that I now require a new tyre and potentially a new wheel. After hitting said pothole I was also an inconvenience to other road users as I had to put my hazards on until I reached the turning at Common road so I could safely stop and address the damage. I will be completing an online form for compensation of the costs of fixing the damage to my vehicle when I have been to the garage tomorrow morning. I can see that other people have damaged their cars this must be a priority to fix this pothole immediately.

  • The two posts of damaged tyres against this report, should be put against a different report I made in Monday that related to a crater size pot hole, at this junction. Councillor Liam Walker, informs me that the Safety Team are considering options to make this junction safer. Hopefully this will not be a protracted process, and the out come will include resurfacing and marking the road up clearly at least in the short term. Please DO NOT mark this report as done, have you have fix the pothole. This report is original about safety, not the pothole
