Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

On the A40, westbound direction, approaching the cutteslowe roundabout, there’s a transition between old and new tarmac, the latter being a good inch higher than the old one. When heavy lorries are passing over it, they trigger vibrations and the neighbouring properties are shaking.
