Large, long depression in road

Reported in the Roads/highways category by lesley kidney at 00:06, Friday 20 March 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

There is a large, long depression/subsidence on the lefthand side near the verge that most cars can't drive over at any speed as the dip means the middle of the underside of the car scrapes the entire length of the depression. Cars need to drive in the middle of the road, or on the other side to avoid it, which is impossible if there is a car coming the other way, due to the bends on this road being mostly blind and the proximity to the blind junction makes it dangerous. This subsidence issue is also present on the entire length up to poundon hill, as well as failed surfaces. I used to be able to do 40 on the straights it's now a strict 30 or below due to the road condition deteriorating so much in the last 4 months.
