Several potholes greater that 20cm

The cycle lane that goes under the rail bridge has several large pot holes, many large mounds of road material, as well as two drains and manholes. The surface is so rough that if you don't steer it just right you will be bounced off into traffic. This is exceptionally dangerous as the bike lane is especially thin at this point and the cars have very little room to avoid you. The potholes and mounds are currently covered by water making it almost impossible to navigate. I now ride in the road despite the angry toots from cars. This problem has been present for over a year. I thought the work that was happening on Botley Rd may fix the problem but they have since packed up and this piece of cycle lane has not been fixed.
