Large manhole sinking and tarmac breaking up

Reported in the Manhole category anonymously at 20:25, Wednesday 22 January 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

This huge manhole is sinking, and the tarmac breaking up all round. As you can see from the wear, the near edge is right on the tyre line of many vehicles. The serrated edge makes the tarmac break up on the indents. It's not yet a problem for vehicles, but could presumably collapse. It is also 15 feet from our bedroom, and vehicles going over the serrated edge make a double thump which is very annoying at night. It is marked PO (phone cables?) It has been making these thumps for years, and is obviously not in a sensible place, but I guess we are stuck with that.
