  • Severe tyre damage caused by this pothole 15.28 28th December 2019 - blew the front drivers side and damaged alloy extensively. Also damage to back tyre. Really dangerous as people are swerving to miss it.

  • I was driving to Bicester Village with young children in my car sleeping. As I turned in to Bicester from the A43 on the roundabout I was presented with a very loud bang underneath my car. This pothole in the road is absolutely huge and dangerous and it is impossible to avoid as it is on the bend. It felt like a collision the children were awoken frightened and crying. I lost immediate tyre pressure only to discover the alloy wheel was damaged and tyre was blown. Fortunately I have nearly new run flats on the car. I had the tyre replaced at the nearest Kwik fit garage, but when I drove home that evening back to Leicester I found that the steering has been also misaligned. I will have the car checked by BMW tomorrow or at there earliest convenience.

  • Huge pothole on the entry to B4100. Destroyed my car's front tire with the car deing driven at low speed due to stopping at the roundabout and had to wait for RAC. Images taken after impact and 2 further cars damaged within the space of an hour. As you can see from the image, both sides of the roads are dangerously degraded and the speed limit at that point is 60 going into a 40. This could cause more serious incidents potentially a fatality.

  • Hit this pothole last night 28.12.2019 at approximately 6.45pm, caused the tyre to split on the sidewall and buckle my actual alloy.

  • I first reported these potholes in July, but you decided not to do anything about them On repeated pushing you agreed to monitor them The worst hole is 10cm deep now! Failure to repair or monitor has led to accidents and vehicles being damaged! You have no S58 defence where you fail to manage the highway

  • Pot hole still there, there seemingly seems to a car stopped just after the pot hole every time i dry by with a flat tyre! It might be Christmas but the roads still get used so need to be maintained!

  • The biggest one has been filled in over night but the rest of the broken road surface is still there and expect the pot hole to return after the first cold night!
