  • There is a much larger pothole than appears as it is flooded with water. It is right on the bend so you are unable to avoid it.

  • 21st November at around 4.40pm. Huge pothole still filled with water. Hit this tonight (dark by then). No warning. Gave the underside of my car an almighty clout. Loud 'bang'. Hope to goodness no permanent damage to chassis or tyre but will be asking local garage to check it. Can I claim for damage?

  • 22nd Nov' these potholes have still not been repaired. To avoid them drivers have to cross towards the oncoming traffic. there will be an accident if they are not dealt with immediately.

  • They're still there (Sunday night - 24th November)…. how many cars have to be ruined and how many tyres have burst before you sort it? Perhaps our local councillors would like to drive around their constituency using this route and see how long it takes for their car to be ruined??

  • These potholes are causing left turning traffic to swerve into the path of oncoming traffic creating danger. No urgent repairs have been carried out despite assurances. This will leave OCC vulnerable to claims.

  • This is how the pothole was in Nov when it caused a crash. prior to this date it hadn't been reported that this pothole existed. My claim is in. the insurance company investigator has stated that this damage is old and the road has not been checked ever 6 weeks like it should. Massive failure for you Oxfordshire county council.
