Extrmely dangerous road surface with many potholes

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 16:46, Thursday 17 June 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

This problem has been ongoing for a long time. Previous patching has not lasted more that a couple of weeks. The road is no so bad that as a cyclist I have to ride on the wrong side of the road which is on a nasty bend. There is constantly water comming out of the holes and running along the road. It needs more than just patching or even resurfacing. There is a problem with drainage or underground springs that needs fixing first. The wheel on my bikes cost hundreds of pounds each. I do not want to damage them, and doubt you would race them if the are damaged as a result of these holes. PLEASE Get the road mended.

  • The problem has NOT been fixed----2 distinct holes that could damge cycle wheels or cause injury to cyclists still exist. The pothole fillings were clearly overfilled by dumping in too much tarmac which means they will seperate again once they suffer water ingress
