Series of potholes along Mill Orchard, East Hanney

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 11:43, Thursday 13 June 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

There are a series of significant potholes along the carriageway in Mill Orchard, on the approach to the bridge over Letcombe Brook. There is a significant pothole in the middle of the carriageway on the bridge. Potholes at this location have been repaired a number of times over the past couple of years on an ad hoc basis. These potholes are a significant hazard as Mill Orchard is relatively narrow and the bridge is a major choke-point. The potholes force west-bound cars onto the wrong side of the carriageway. This road needs to be properly repaired, as has been the case with many of the roads in the Hanneys over the past couple of months.

  • Some repairs to a few potholes in Mill Orchard have been made. But may that were obvious at the time were left untreated by the roadworks team. I report that significant potholes are present still along Mill Orchard. These are mainly adjacent to the driveway of Bramley House where there is a long, deep one and also opposite the boundary of Yew Hedge. In addition potholes are present (a) at the junction of Main Street with Mill Orchard and (b) opposite the Royal British Legion boundary wall on the approach to the bridge over Letcombe Brook. The latter holes and exceedingly poor road surfaces cause drivers to swing into the centre of the road on this dangerous bridge and hence are major road hazards.
