Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and South Oxfordshire District Council 5 minutes later

The section of road (B471) through Woodcote between Elvendon Lane and Beech Lane, especially close to Bouchier Fencing and at the junction of Beech Lane and the B471, has suffered as a result of construction work related to new housing and the consequential digging up of the road to install utilities. It is now very uneven and bumpy for cars and represents a risk for motor cyclists and drivers swerving to avoid the various holes in the surface. This section needs resurfacing to improve safety and the quality of the road surface.
