Loose chippings on A4185 Rowstock to Chilton

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

This road needs another sweeping via a road sweeper after the recent surface redressing as there are still loads of loose chippings on it. 3 stones pinged my windscreen this morning. Fortunately not damaging it but that’s not the point. This road isn’t fit to be driven on.

  • FFS!!!!

    The road needs resweeping as it is littered with loose chippings left over by your cowboy contractors, namely Hazel & Jefferies.

    If I get a chipped windscreen, I will be submitting a claim to OCC as you have already been told about this defect.

  • Still not been swept properly.

    Mind you, even the road hadn't been repaired properly prior to having the loose chippings applied.

    A total bodge from start to finish.

  • Beginning to lose all of what little faith I had of fixmystreet just lately.

    People raise a concern, for it to then go unnoticed, or some excuse made why it's not yet necessary to do any work.

    Take for instance this report, nothing has still yet been done. Loose chippings are still scattered the whole length of the A4185 because it hasn't been swept properly.

  • Still loads of loose chippings on this road. Only yesterday I received 2 chips to my windscreen. Not enough for an MOT fail, but annoying nevertheless as they are in my direct vision of the road.
