  • Oxfordshire County Council tell me that this is a duplicate of another report and refer to a link provided. I do not see any link provided and cannot find any nearby report on fixmystreet's map. I haven't cycled that way since 8th Jan; has the problem been fixed?

  • It's a joke, trying to get anyone to actually do anything other than to say no further action, or fixed, when it clearly hasn't been!!!

  • Start a new report, with a link to this report and mention that it's still not been fixed after "x" amount of months.

    Once a report has been reviewed by OCC, they tend to ignore any further comments made.

    Good luck.
