Week beginning 20th July for two weeks you have been repairing kerbs / road surface in Elizabeth Road. Today, Saturday 1st August you have parked large road surfacing machines in Two Tree Hill severely damaging the kerbs! You have done as much damage here in 24 hours as you have repaired over the past two weeks in the adjoining road. When are you going to repair Two Tree Hill please?

Whilst Zoom took some trouble to repair the pavements / kerbs they have been destroyed by the recent roadworks vehicles. The road is still littered with tarmac pieces and the kerbs are dangerous. The College goes back soon and lots of students walk down this road to get to the College. Will you please take action before there is an accident?

This was reported six weeks ago. The road still has tarmac lumps from OCC parking a tarmac spreader in the road. There is still kerb damage from the tarmac spreader. There is significant kerb damage to both sides of the road for its whole length. There is still kerb damage from years back - it's dangerous. This road is used by students shortcutting to Henley College. We have had people tripping on them for years. When are they going to be fixed? Can you contact me please?
