Drainage issue causing an excessive amount of potholes on the road

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 18:39, Sunday 22 August 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

There is a leak coming from the left-hand verge which is draining into the road. The leak has been there for months and is causing flooding and potholes which makes the road almost impassable. We have been left to try to alleviate the issue, but we can only create temporary relief rather than fix it completely. There are a large number of potholes, some of which are extremely deep and expansive in themselves. It would seem, in my opinion, more prudent to resurface this portion of the road, rather than just fill in the potholes, so the problem doesn't come back so quickly next time.
