Approx 10m of failed road, heavily pitted/rutted and with potholes

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

10m of heavily rutted and pitted highway interspersed with numerous potholes. The area is on a bend and is the state of the highway (wearing course) is dangerous to vehicles and cyclists. Vehicles/cyclists tend to move into the middle of the road to avoid the worst section of the road (and likely damage to vehicles/bikes) which leaves them in a precarious position due to the vicinity of a blind corner which could have oncoming traffic. Vehicles/cyclists have the choice of risking potential damage/injury through running on the road or facing oncoming traffic. Needs to be reviewed and road repaired/re-instated. Note the Banbury Road (into North Newington) is busy at peak times with parents dropping off to school and school buses running - increasing the risk of an incident.
