    Iam at a loss to see how this is listed as having been "Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 11:01, Friday 18 January 2019" I spoke directly with two OCC Highways staff in July 2018 as they stood by my gate (18 Watlington Road) during one of their many inspections of works being carried out by "Cala Homes" on the Littleworth road housing development. I was assured it would be reported and observed one of the men recording it on his mobile phone. As I was regarded as bing a local resident who was helpful throughout the numerous roadworks I was assured it would be dealt with as a matter of urgency. I have spoken with Benson Parish Council on a number of occasions to get this sorted. The noise from HGV's/ Trailers and farm vehicles is horrendous and is plainly getting worse. I am sure there are other roads across the County which have a higher priority but given the ? carelessness of OCC Highways staff not reporting this, I think this should now be given a higher priority. Thank you, Mike Fleming (07879691009)

  • This is getting worse. Has been a hazard since utility trench has subsided several months ago. Causes vehicles to move into middle of road to avoid on this narrow part of the road. Now needs urgent action.

  • This dip in the road is so very noisy when HGV and heavy machinery pass over it sounds like an accident has happened, day and night.
