Repairs needed to Old Road, Wheatley

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category by Michael Skinner at 17:48, Sat 28 November 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

From Acremead Road to the top of Old Road we have a pandemic of pot holes on each side of the road which has had no repairs since we moved into No 83 more than 30 years ago. The road is extremely busy with deliveries, dog walker cars and resident cars and deserves a complete review. The street light outside 83 is covered by overgrown branches, I have reported this previously but nothing has happened. Surely an officer can come up the hill just to see how bad it is.

Council ref: ENQ20881478

  • Thankyou for your report. I will visit the site shortly to look at the potholes but please raise another FMS for the Street Light as this is a different Team who would need to investigate this. Many thanks

  • Your men have filled in one or two patches below our house, totally inadequate, but none of the long "ditch" opposite our house at Number 83 has been repaired. I think you need a senior manager to look at this road which has not been resurfaced since we moved in more than 30 years ago.

    State changed to: Open

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • I have reported this twice and you have told me the problem is sorted. There are still branches which overhang this light and whilst they are without leaf now you can see how dense they would be from the Spring onward. These should be removed to give us uninterrupted light in a very dark lane. I would also mention that the light itself is not working whilst the one outside number 73 is working.
