Repeated floods, right across lane

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 22:18, Wednesday 11 March 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

This lane floods after rain. It becomes impassable to pedestrians, hazardous to cycle due to hidden potholes, and also hazardous to vehicles. Please dig out soakaways. Two locations 50 yards apart, one just after the just-repaired deep pothole (heading South), the other in the dip 50 yards on towards Emmer Green. In the past only very heavy rain caused a flood, but it has got worse, now any rain causes it.
