Open crack

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 00:53, Mon 2 November 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This has been going on for very long time and it keeps getting wider but every time this gets reported and someone goes out to investigate it is not deem to be fixed ,

Which i fine amazing has at the other end of this road coming off the a40 it has been resurfaced to opening of a crack across, so why can't this be done at this end which is really wear and tear to the road surface ,

If this is still not rectified then i would like to make a formal complaint because every time i drive over this it is not doing my tyres and tracking any good.

If this was on the highways it would deem unsafe to traffic.

Sorry to keep harping on about this but i feel enough is enough.

Thank you.

Council ref: ENQ20879603

  • Yes this is on the bridge section,

    The first picture is of the damage stretch section of bridge towards marsh lane the other picture is of the resurface section of bridge at the other end which you can see is filled in and no cracks as the first picture of the open crack on bridge section.. i hope this helps out and to get a satisfactory response to getting this done.

  • This has recently been added to the replacement of the bridge deck expansion joint I have not yet got a program, but expect that this work will not take place until Spring/Summer of next year at the earliest.
