Subsided trench and water access cover

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 00:14, Fri 11 September 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Since Thames water replaced the water main down this section of Bow Road, the road surface has settled and become uneven. It is particularly bad over this water access cover which now protrudes through the surface and is in line with vehicles nearside wheels.

Council ref: ENQ20875938

  • Work has been carried out last week which has partially fixed the problem. Though the area of tarmac around the Thames Water access cover has not been repaired.

  • This has yet to be resolved. Thames Water need to repair the tarmac around their access covers as this is a road safety issue, particularly for cyclists.
