Water seeping from road surface

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 14:09, Sun 28 November 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

There is a small seepage of water from a joint in the road surface at the junction of Sheep Street and Fisher's Lane. It is probably the re-emergence of one of the many springs in this area, but will need to be investigated before the water flow increases during the winter. The water on the roadway was frozen this morning, a problem that will only get worse as the winter progresses.

  • This has been reported to Thames Water as well. Water has been leaking on Church St for over 2-3 weeks. Reported and no action taken. Now there is a pot hole in the centre of the road and the surface is sinking with water bubbling up. This morning the road was iced over. Needs resolving before it deteriorates even more and potentially causes flooding
