Disgraceful road conditions.

Reported via mobile in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 12:36, Wednesday 28 July 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 hours, 5 minutes later

The B4477 heading out of Carterton towards Lechlade is in a staggering state of disrepair. Driving down this stretch of road can only be described as akin to what I’d imagine driving across the surface of Mars would be like.

It has been left to fall into disrepair, it’s broken, uneven and means if driving anything less than a Landrover makes it intolerable.

I (along with the thousands of other drivers who use this route daily) pay a not insignificant amount of money to use the public highway. It doesn’t seem like much to expect that this road be resurfaced in full from Carterton to the A361.

This hasn’t been done for at least 10 years to my knowledge and I’ve had enough. Please get this road sorted. It’s a very high traffic area and deserves more attention.
