Recent tarmac patching

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

Less than a week ago on north bound carriageway a number of patches of tarmac were poured into the service trenches that had eroded over the last few years. The tarmac was not compacted, sealed or even levelled. The road is now worse condition than before'repairs' were carried out, there are now not only subsidence in road but also severe raised bumps where cars have already squeezed filling up and out of road. This is especially bad for cyclist as road is narrow and cycles use same section of road as near side car wheels and as dips, bumps and level road are all same colour and texture meaning faults cannot be seen in advance at night. There are also 2 other problems, 1 the road, especially near edge, is strewn with thousands of small stones from displaced 'repairs' and 2, the workmen did not even fill in more than 40% of the subsided trenches. Please visit site and inspect from a safety viewpoint especially with regard to cycles.
