Surface dressing failing

Reported via mobile in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 19:33, Wednesday 21 July 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Recently applied surface dressing is failing due to the high temperatures. The surface in wheel tracks started bleeding over the last couple of days at the entry to a reduced speed limit. However in the last 24 hours these tracks have started cracking and breaking apart, leading to significant material loss exposing the old road surface. Seems likely this will rapidly degrade.
