Subsiding trench backfill

Reported via iOS in the Pothole category by peter hopgood at 18:44, Wednesday 29 January 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

The whole width of the Thames Water road trench is subsiding, but the downhill side is much worse as it has spread much wider than the trench width. The pothole caused vehicles to cross into the opposing lane, and cyclists having to move to the middle of the road or run the risk of being unsaddled.

Council ref: ENQ20855753

  • Still nothing done here and no reasons given as to why. Why bother reporting if nothing happens? This is still a hazard to motorists and cyclists!
