Large Pothole, depth of a tennis ball, length of 2 A4 bits of paper on Oakesmere

Dear Oxford County Council

I am a Community Nurse. I was driving to an urgent visit to a palliative patient in Netherton Road when I hit an unmarked pot hole at the side of the road on Oakesmere.

The pictures are attached. Fortunately a friendly gardener replaced my tyre for me at the side of the road so I could carry on to my visit. However I was still delayed by 30 minutes.

Following this visit I had to rush to the nearest garage to get my tyre replaced as I could not carry on with my spare tyre due to the mileage I cover as a Community Nurse, this also meant I was late for further visits.

For this reason, I would like to claim compensation for the loss of time and the charge I had to spend out due the poor upkeep of the Oaksmere in Appleton.

I will ensure my details are written in the private details box and I hope to hear from you soon in regards to the procedure of my claim.

Kind Regards Emma

Council ref: ENQ18819309

  • You haven't provided me a 'link' to track the supposedly duplicate of another report therefore I would be grateful if you could send me one and furthermore deal with the compensation that I have asked for regarding the time and cost caused by the poor upkeep of your roads!
