Deep pothole on first mini roundabout

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 08:34, Tuesday 15 October 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

There is a large pothole that has appeared on the first of the two mini roundabouts as you head out of Witney on the junction of bridge Street and West End. It seems to be by the iron works in the road and appears to be reasonably deep.

  • This pothole has led to a number of exposed ironworks. This will result in damaged car wheels and tyres and undoubtedly risk a cyclist falling in the middle of a very busy mini roundabout. This needs fixing properly as a matter of urgency

  • This has grown over the past few days and is now several inches deep and wide. The raised ironwork is in real danger of damaging tyres and the risk to cyclists is high, especially given the location on a double roundabout where ones attention is on the many exits and other traffic

  • This hole is much deeper after the rain and is a hazard that needs to be urgently fixed before a cyclist or motorbike get hurt or cars get damaged.

  • This pothole is very dangerous, have witnessed several cars and cyclists swerving this week to avoid it. There is also another one opening up on the road coming down Newland towards the mini roundabouts, again around ironworks.

  • The raised Ironwork is becoming so dangerous Im suprised no one has been injured or killed. its actually shocking to see and to even think of the risk this poses! Please address this !

  • This is now very bad, the road has broken away around the water inspection boxes in the road. With the volume of traffic and 11 tonne bus's passing over every 20mins, the deep holes are getting deeper and the base hard core is being exposed..

  • Surprise surprise this pothole is still there, ironworks now exposed and would estimate the hole now at 8" avoiding action has to be taken or serious damage to vehicles will result.

  • This pothole is dangerous and deep and despite reporting it myself early this week, my report was closed as it was deemed not necessary to fix.

  • Has this been repaired by a member of the public? It looks very minimal and will only last a few days!

  • This isn't fixed. This is dangerous. This is getting worse. It is very difficult to avoid the very large pothole when using this mini roundabout.

  • I first reported this on 15th October, it is now 4th December and the problem still persists and is getting worse. This is a major junction in Witney and the pot hole is dangerous. Over the past 7+ weeks the hole has been partially filled twice (the first occasion led to this being declared fixed) but the temporary filling doesn't last more than a few days. Please get this fixed as a matter of urgency.

    Many thanks.
