Hit this pothole on the 2nd of December just after turning eastbound towards Wantage off Fawlers Road. Unavoidable if oncoming traffic and hard to see when dark. Its been there at least a week now. Be careful when driving along this road as it can cause damage to Tyres/wheels like in my case.

Council ref: ENQ19849489

  • I have realised that i put the 2nd as the date that i hit the pothole, infact the date i hit the pothole was Tuesday 3rd.

  • Just a little note to the person above. The hole in the photos are the same hole as the one I hit which actually is further East. If you follow the road on the map it's near "112" where numerous posts are pinned. Hope your claim will be a success. I'm going to do mine as soon as my car's back from the garage too.
