Road damaged by Thames Water work and not repaired

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 07:51, Friday 11 September 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Thames Water had to do emergency repairs which were completed on 10th September. However they have only repaired part of the road damaged by their work. They have left 2 areas of broken road surface which were caused by their works. The surface is damaged enough that it will continue to deteriorate and is already close to being unsafe.

  • Oddly the road has been partly repaired. The hole has been filled in across part of the carriageway but a deep hole has been left in the middle of the carriageway.

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • This is getting a bit crazy now. The original water pipe hole was fixed quickly. A large area has been patched on the other side of the carriageway possibly by Thames Water. But the hole in the middle of the road is still not repaired and is getting considerably worse. Looks like Thames Water decided the small patch and the large patch were their responsibility but the hole in the middle was not. Oxfordshire have clearly not prioritised the hole. Both organisations should be ashamed.
