Pothole on slip road to A40 not accessible to photograph

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 22:04, Tuesday 16 March 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This pothole has been here for a few weeks, and appears to have had a temporary fix. Now very dangerous and likely to cause major damage to vehicles or accident to motorcycles. It is far along the slip road on the Oxford bound direction and is almost impossible to avoid, either keeping far left at 20 mph, leaving a very short opportunity yo join the main carriageway, or keeping far right where its not safe to join the carriageway, particularly as sun sets and sun affects mirrors to safely see traffic coming from the west. Extremely dangerous.

Council ref: ENQ21890304
