Very bad road surface

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 09:05, Wednesday 31 March 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This applies to the entirety of Eynsham road from Fogwell Road (Westbound to Eastbound). The roads are littered with potholes and cracks, which force cyclists and cars to swerve into the oncoming lane to avoid going over the potholes etc. This needs repairing/resurfacing throughout as it is beginning to get dangerous as I almost had a head-on collision.

Council ref: ENQ21891517

  • Thank you for your report. I have visited the site you pinpointed on the map, in the Eynsham Road B4044, see photos, and assessed it. I have marked up the worst potholes for repair. The other small defects you refer to, unfortunately, don't meet our current intervention criteria so I cannot arrange a repair. We will continue to monitor these during our routine inspections.

    In reply to your comment about the "the entirety of Eynsham road from Fogwell Road (Westbound to Eastbound).....This needs repairing/resurfacing throughout". This issue has been submitted to our Asset Renewals Team, as a Non-Safety Defect, for their appraisal. Any major works have to go to this team, who will consider this request, along with many others, for inclusion in future programmed works, subject to there being no conflicting works and sufficient funds. I am therefore re-assigning this report to that team.
