Subsidence of repair to (and potholes on top of) trench across the road just west of the eastbound bus stop, and opposite Volvo showroom, at Cumnor Hill, Cumnor, OX2 9PL

This degraded trench repair, which includes both potholes and incipient subsidence, extends halfway across the eastbound carriageway of Cumnor Hill.

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.

The comfort of users on two wheels also deserves to be taken into account: it is unpleasant to cycle across subsided trenches or an eroded surface.
