Large trench dug which has sunk badly

Reported in the Pavements category anonymously at 12:26, Wednesday 22 May 2019

Sent to Oxford City Council and Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

The shop next door to me on the corner of Burdell Avenue and Merewood Avenue has had 3 phase electricity put in but the trench (which they dug themselves) has not been filled in properly and the whole trench has sunk leaving a rather dangerous dip/lip along the whole length of it. It is on the pavement area outside the shop which has been changed into a launderette. The pavement runs from across from my front gate post diagonally across to the hedge on the corner. This is on the land registry and is definitely the highway. Someone will trip over this very soon!!!

Council ref: ENQ19833717
