Broken Manhole cover in road immediately opposite Bellingers garage

Reported via desktop in the Manhole category anonymously at 18:00, Sunday 18 July 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The manhole cover is broken and a danger to passing vehicles. When driving over it on Saturday my vehicle noticeably dropped into the hole. I had previously noted, approx 2 weeks ago, when purchasing petrol at this garage ,that the cover was moving so making loud noise each time vehicle drove over it.

  • My vehicle was nearly damaged too. This needs fixing asap before a tyre blow-out causes an accident

  • This is extremely urgent. The drain appears to be sinking and the road is collapsing around it. It has deteriorated rapidly in the last two weeks. I drive past this at least once every day. You have to pull into oncoming traffic turning into Bellingers to avoid it.

  • Earlier today a car swerved to miss this as I was turning into Bellingers, if this isn’t fixed soon there will be a head on accident!

  • It is 3 weeks since I reported this problem, does some one need to be injured before this is repaired
