Broken and potholed road south of Blenheim Riding Centre.

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 15:29, Thu 15 November 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This very short stretch of road south of Blenheim Riding Centre has been a disaster for years. The Road surface is beyond poor, never properly repaired, had further deteriorated early this year to become almost undriveable. Was eventually just patched up again, rather than properly re-surfaced as desperately needed, and guess's now all breaking up again, with the usual series of deep potholes. It is an utter waste of time and money to keep pouring a bit of tarmac into a deep wet hole, and expect it to last more than a few months. There have been several claims for car damage caused by this road already over the past 2 years, all admitted at further significant cost to the council. It needs resurfacing once and for all with no more excuses; it is hardly a major stretch of road, but does urgently need re-surfacing properly, before it inevitably becomes impossible to use again this winter. Never used to be like this in years gone by.

  • How on earth can anyone claim to have investigated this, which clearly has not happened, and subsequently close the report as ‘no further action’??!!?? Again, the road is completely broken up, again, see the attached photos - please do something about it and stop prevaricating!!
