Road surface has 'gone soft' in front of church

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 16:40, Wed 7 April 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

It’s curious it is happening at this time of year when it’s not that hot though the sun was strong shining on a black surface. It suggests the binding material that has come to the surface has a low melting point.

I see this as a safety hazard - there is now a large area with a mirror finish so no skid resistance - it will become a bit like a staking rink in wet and freezing weather - there is a strong smell coming from the surface, which in the worst case could be phenol or similar coming from the ‘binder’ in the asphalt - it’s no pleasant getting sticky material on the soles of ones shoes
