Many potholes along the whole stretch of Akeman Streer

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 09:29, Wed 11 November 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The example shown is a pothole almost immediately outside my gate. However, there are many more along the whole stretch of the road. It is particularly bad near St. John’s House. This has been an issue for a very long time. These potholes are likely to get worse when traffic increases due to Akeman Street being a diversion route when the B4022 is closed in a few weeks time. Also, is it possible to have the speed limit changed to 20mph as you enter the village as people tend to speed along our street?

  • Lots of holes along Akeman Street towards the High Street have been marked in preparation for repair, but nothing indicated to show that there will be any repairs between the park and St. Johns house. This stretch is in dire need of repair as it is too difficult to see how big the pot holes are when they are full of water.

  • Many thanks for the holes which were fixed. Unfortunately, many marked holes were not filled because the markings had been washed away before the works team visited our street along from Woodland View down towards the War Memorial. From the play park down to the B4022, nothing has been done and the road is abysmal near and around St. John’s house. I can no longer drive down there in my car!! With the recent rains large potholes have been obscured making the road an obstacle course. Lucky if you don’t hit a pothole. Would like to know when Akeman Street will be brought back to acceptional standards considering it dates back to when the Romans were here?!!!
