Dangerous overbanding

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 10:35, Wed 16 October 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

The section of road from the A417 down Goosey lane and through Goosey village is almost entirely covered in overbanding with very little tramac stone. Grip levels on this section of road are extremely low in the dry and dangerous in the wet. Even travelling at very low speeds brakes in my car and on my motorbike almost immediately lock and start to skid. Worst still, on the motorbike when coming off the throttle to decelerate weight shifts to the front wheel and has unsettled the bike on more than one occasion, again, at very low speeds. With winter fast approaching I'm very concerned that this stretch of road will cause accidents.
