Manhole surround has large gap betwen it and road

Reported in the Manhole category anonymously at 14:40, Wednesday 1 January 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

This is one of a series of manhole covers from Rose Lane junction to just past the traffic lights that cyclists have to avoid, potentially it is dangerous if wheel gets trapped. Cyclist just move into the line of traffic to avoid. If all these manholes could be safely ridden over without having to change direction to avoid it would be safer.

  • I can confirm that the gap by this manhole cover is particularly dangerous - I went over it this morning on my bicycle and burst my back tyre.
