Pothole repairs incomplete

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Hello I hope you are well. The City Council told me to report this. Yesterday and/or the day before (I do not know as I am severely disabled and on a lot of medication) your workmen kindly began to fix some of the potholes (some round/square/strips etc) between my ground floor flat at OX2 6BY and the Rickety Press PH opposite. This is where there is a crossroads and subject to a lot of damage. However, the workmen only filled in half of some of the long potholes and those next to them they didn't fill in at all. They then went to the top of the road by Walton Street and filled in some there. I think its a bit odd only to do half a pothole and to ignore those next to them. Cranham Street has heavy wear just outside my flat opposite the pub as it is at a crossroads and the pub has many deliveries. the remainder of the street is ok. I just thought that I should mention it as the City Council thought it was odd. I have a video from my phone but it won't upload. The thing is I think that the sharp straight edges of the half completed repairs will probably get shocked and wear pretty quickly. Cheers, Stephen

  • Thank you for your report. The repairs which have been made recently were to repair any safety issues in the area. A further inspection has taken place and more work is planned in preparation for surface treatment in the area this Summer (over the Cranham Terrace and into Cranham street). Unfortunately I do not yet have exact dates for these works, but the roads will be monitored and any safety defects repaired.
