Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

There is very large subsidence where the waterboard replaced some pipes a year or so ago. They reach from the bus stop on Rousham Road to approx. 300 Meters out of the village. Some are very large and you can not drive on the correct side of the road. These could very easily cause a biker to go over the handlebars or brake a cars suspension.

Council ref: ENQ20881590

  • The Potholes are still there and are getting a lot worse. These could cause a serious accident if people have to try to avoid them as there is no room for two cars. A bike rider will go over the handlebars More subsidence has also appeared further into the village as the whole section of water repairs was not completed to an competent standard.

  • This problem has still not been rectified. The dips in the road are getting larger and more dangerous. More are appearing now as you move into the village along Rousham road as the holes that were dug for the water works were not filled back in correctly.
