  • Thank you for your report. I have visited the site you pinpointed on the map, the Farmoor to Swinford stretch of carriageway, on the B4044 Eynsham Road. I inspected this section of carriageway and could not find the 'Every single drain cover through Swinford is sunken and potholed', 'they are all 2 inches below road level' issues you refer to. I marked up one sunken gully drain, see attached photo, that had sunk barely 40mm, to be repaired, but the rest, unfortunately, don't meet our current intervention criteria, so I cannot arrange an immediate repair.
