Hole in Pavement

Reported via desktop in the Pavements category anonymously at 10:13, Mon 23 November 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

I reported on 2 August 2020 that there is an Electricity manhole just outside our property at 2 Don Close OX11 7SB, actually on Colne Drive. There is a small 3" hole in the pavement next to it, but we think the ground may have collapsed inside it. This could be very dangerous.

A team came quickly and placed a protective plate and cone over the area but nothing has happened since. In case this has been forgotten, can it be looked at please. My patio on the other side of the wall has also slumped so I'd like it if your team could alert me to when you come - I'm at 2 Don Close, my wall is the one on the right of the photo. 07899 796889

  • This was reported in August and within 24 hours a yellow metal plate and warning cone put in place. However, its now late December and nothing else has been done.
