Mud all over the road, sides of the road driven over and knocked down.

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and West Oxfordshire District Council less than a minute later

A local house is having work done in the garden and the road is now a mud bath, the sides of the road have been driven over and knocked down. It is dangerous to drive, walk, cycle and ride down. The people doing the work are spending hundreds of thousands of pounds on their garden and they should be made to clean the road and put the sides of the road back as they were. I rode it today and have attached the photos. It was very difficult to ride as my horse was slipping on the mud and the huge work vehicles are loud, noisy and dangerous.

  • In addition to the mud bath of the road that is very slippery for cars too, the construction workers are parking all their vehicles in passing places that are allocated at the top of the road. This is making it almost impossible to pass traffic approaching in the opposite directions. This is difficult enough with regular sized cars, however there are very large contraction vehicles and trucks coming down this road and I was held up for over 15 minutes as it was impossible to pass as all the workers vans blocked the passing places. This is unacceptable, they should park inside the grounds of the property they are working on or elsewhere but NOT blocking the passing places and causing traffic havoc.
