Sinking manhole cover causing pothole, outside 26 Home Close

Reported in the Manhole category anonymously at 08:00, Wednesday 12 February 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 6 minutes later

The whole house shakes (a visitor described it as like a minor earthquake!) every time the no 6 bus goes over the sinking manhole outside our house. Buses are every 15-20 minutes. I believe new cracks in the house walls are due to this. Clearly, very clearly Home Close and Rosamund Road are NOT suitable for buses, let alone double deckers on Sundays! I would like someone to actually experience this from inside the house.
