Potholes and undulations have not been fixed after 20 months of complaint and 3 months after last report (the third attempt )

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 08:31, Tue 13 November 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

14 months ago and still not fixed. Last report, exactly 3 months ago was that it would be referred to the Civils Team for future work. Well, a large white painted rectangle appeared some 9 weeks ago but the undulation has not been repaired together with the resulting deep pothole. Why not? Marmion Road, a short distance away appears to be in a different category. How come 23 spots have been identified for rectification and marked up just 3 weeks ago and this very day all of them are being fixed over three days. Large areas are being repaired and most are not potholes but damaged surfaces due to water pipe replacements etc. This is a small residential street adjoining others and does not carry anywhere near the traffic as on Reading Road. One is left wondering where the priorities lie. I live adjacent to the site in question here and am totally frustrated. Its as though this job has been forgotten - and it's been 20 months in total waiting for it to be fixed. My house will fall down from structural damage before this is fixed, based on present performance.

  • NOT FIXED. New white lines yes, whilst the three days fixing nearby Marmion Road (22 patches more than adequately treated for a residential area compared to this major roadway) is complete.

  • Now 5th February 2019. Another four weeks and still no sign of fixing the problem. Meantime, Marmion Road nearby after extensive repairs has been revisited to apply 'finishing touches'. It's now 16 months since first raising this problem and 2 months since last claimed (third time actually) to have been fixed. IT"S NOT FIXED. What's going wrong? What can any of us do?
