Debris on central reservation obstructing carriageway

Reported anonymously at 17:10, Friday 17 January 2020

Sent to Oxford City Council and Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

What looks like an abandoned sign or manhole cover is on the central reservation of the A40, direction from Cutteslowe roundabout towards Headington, before the Marston turn off. It is slipping further towards the carriageway and will become a dangerous obstruction if not removed. Unable to supply photos as I’m driving past it. Currently a few cm from the tarmac but has got closer over the last week.

Council ref: ENQ20854123
