Lots of holes and dips

Reported via mobile in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 19:42, Tue 10 November 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The road had small holes already which have been made a lot worse and deeper after the burst water main which resulted in people ignoring the road closed signs and using our drive and other neighbours to turn around in, this along with the water has made a number of holes bigger, the photos show the road just outside of our house, others are the same, where the road was dug up for the water leak the road has cracked around the tarmac that has just been put down (badly, the road is higher than the tarmac) both sides of the road dip down and are in dire need of general maintenance along with the holes

  • The road directly outside, and driveway entrances of neighbours have sustained impact damage caused by vehicles diverted along York Road due to a mains water pipe leak. Diverted vehicles have used the localities to turn around, contributing to damaged boundaries, and tarmac directly outside driveways.

    Recent roadworks due to a separate leak, have been completed to an unsatisfactory level in places. Already, the tarmac has began to crack and separate.
