Excessive HGV traffic and noise

Reported anonymously at 12:45, Thursday 30 July 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and Vale of White Horse District Council less than a minute later

There's excessive noise from constant HGV traffic on Drayton Road. Every few minutes large lorries (full and empty) are using the Drayton Road in both directions, and are hitting sunken drains and pot holes causing very loud bangs and vibrations.

Why are so many HGV's using this route? The road needs to be repaired to fix these pot holes and sunken drains (which are getting worse with the constant heavy traffic).

Council ref: ENQ20872452
