‘Pothole’/ trough right across the road between 43 Newland and 116 Newland.

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 14:36, Wednesday 15 July 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Quite some time ago, a ‘channel’ was dug across the road ( for wiring? Pipes?) . Over time this has started to ‘subside’/ break down and has recently got much worse. Every time a bus, lorry, tractor, but particularly cars or vans pulling a trailer( or open back lorries) go over it, our house literally shudders, pictures move on walls and the noise is incredibly loud. It sounds like a car crash or a vehicle shedding its load!! This is obviously worse at night/ early hours when it has started to disturb our sleep.

Council ref: ENQ20870481
