Trench excavation left open

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 09:31, Monday 21 June 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Contractor dug trench in turning head last Mon/Tues for electricity cable but no further work has been carried out. This resulted in half of turning head being closed off with vehicles using private driveways to turn around. Furthermore, there is no mention on One.Network for this work and when it is programmed to be completed. Can you confirm that a road opening licence has been granted and if so when the work will be completed?
