Failed previous repair!

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 10:59, Mon 24 December 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

This new pothole is a result of a failed / bodged up repair from a few months ago. The area in Barrow Road, just before the junction with Faringdon Road was poorly repaired in the past, and this is now breaking up and a hole of about 30cm across has appeared. This is very dangerous for cyclists when it is full of water.

Council ref: ENQ18822233

  • I agree. It is about time this whole section of road was replaced including the potholes on the corner further towards the airfield which again keep being badly repaired.

  • This has still not been attended to. This whole stretch needs resurfacing but at least fix the pothole near the junction temporarily

  • This area of road gets worse. One very deep pothole particularly dangerous.

  • So this problem was reported on this platform before Christmas 2018, but today I noticed that it now has white paint around it, so thats 2 months for some one to just look into this growing hole - ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE SERVICE FROM OCC.

  • This is beyond joke now, hole getting bigger, are the highways department responsible to anyone as if they cannot fix potholes properly, this dept should be disbanded and it put out to private tender!
