Sunken infill on channel dug across road

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 18:29, Fri 9 August 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

A channel was dug across this road some months ago, it was then filled in and tarmaced over. The repair was insufficient as it has sunk in the whole way causing thuds every time car goes over. Road closed last week for more work to new house, a different channel has been dug next to the older one. This has been filled in and at the moment is ok but the other is still there. The older one needs repairing properly, there was some hope that the recent road closure would have included this repair but it hasnt. I dont know who is responsible for making sure people who dig up roads repair them properly but in this case it hasnt been done. Please get this filled to prevent any further unnecessary damage to traffic.
