Dangerous potholes along most of Halfpenny Lane

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

The potholes on Halfpenny Lane to each side of the road are now at such a bad level they are ruining vehicles and causing traffic gridlock and accidents. This has been the case for over two months now. The majority of issues are in areas usually used as ‘passing places’ outside properties which is making the situation worse as people use them heavily but then vehicles are now becoming damaged and stuck as the holes and crevices are so deep. The road is used heavily by parents taking children to Moulsford and Cranford House schools so the situation is endangering vehicles carrying children. A friend with a horse box almost overturned and her horse fell inside the lorry two weeks ago. The situation is now so bad that people are being forced to drive into either Cholsey or Streatley to avoid the problem as it is now so dangerous. This is adding traffic strain to those areas and I’m sure residents there are not happy about that. As I have children in my car on that route and it is often dark so I haven’t taken any photographs however I will try to do so and upload but in the meantime please can someone go and assess the situation as it is terrible.
