Potholes and warped road surface yet again!!

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 16:33, Wed 31 July 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

Multiple pot holes and a warped road surface from A4130 turning over the bridge towards the power station on both sides of the road. This is a constant issue being reported every 3-4 months once it has been filled. Surely it would be cheaper and more effective to repair the road properly rather than just refilling the same hole.

Council ref: ENQ19839196

  • Now 2 very large holes with bridge structure underneath fully visible on both sides of the road near the roundabout and the other churned up tarmac holes at the roundabout are increasing in size as well. Cars are having to give way to HGV's to avoid wheel and tyre damage. Will cause a cyclist or motorbike to fall with potential for serious injury as well.

  • They are of such a significant size now that they definitely are over the permitted 45mm depth! Someone walking down there will almost certainly get hit by a flying stone from the way the pothole is breaking apart

  • These holes were fixed last Wednesday 25th September, but already today Monday 30th September they are back in the same state.

    Can you please fix these again, but get it done properly this time so as they don't have to be continually reported.

    Thank you

  • These 'holes' - more like Sink Holes now are horrendous and extremely dangerous! If a bike or small car hits them it could cause major damage. This is not acceptable. The patch ups are definitely not acceptable.
