Cattle grid and concrete around it is breaking up.

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 10:59, Friday 18 January 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

The cattle grid has been in place since the A420 bypass was built in 1977. The owner of the land has been led to believe that the cattle grid is adopted by Highways. The cattle grid has begun to fall into disrepair and cars sink as they travel over the grid. As a result, excess force is put on the concrete either side when leaving the grid and this is now breaking up.

  • The size of these potholes is causing damage to many vehicles as we enter the business estate. This then causes vehicles to cross onto the opposite side of the road to avoid the potholes creating another hazard of trying to avoid oncoming vehicles on a blind bend. Very dangerous.
