Trench capping subsidence on both carriageways at 178 Cumnor HIll

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 02:35, Tuesday 22 January 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

This is one of several trenches whose capping has subsided that are located within a few tens of feet of each other. They are a real nuisance to cyclists, because they generate a series of unpleasant jolts when they are crossed.

As someone who cycles the full length of Cumnor Hill both ways every day, I would like to point out the necessity of ensuring that the road surface is fit for road users on two wheels as well, not just cars and larger vehicles. This means, for example, making good extended eroded areas and subsided trench coverings, not just deep holes or ruts.
