Pothole for months

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 16:18, Wednesday 12 January 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

It is totally and utterly UNACCEPTABLE simply to close the previous report and pretend that this has solved the problem. IT HAS NOT. The pothole is still there, and I expect my employees at the county council, whose salaries I pay, to FIX IT. I expect OCC to REPAIR THE CARRIAGEWAY as per their statutory duty. Please note that I am saving my report, and should my car suffer suspension damage I will require compensation, and publicise this disgraceful situation.

Council ref: ENQ22913702

  • Well said. Unfortunately, closing reports as fixed and not staying as open "in progress" appears to be an ongoing tradition for this web site. There have been numerous reports regarding not only potholes, but also the traffic lights and stop markings at this same roundabout area. They too were closed, or had comments looked into/fixed and this apparently was not the case. The graph statistics of reported/fixed, clearly therefore possibly not a true reflection of data.

  • Is it a tradition of the website, or of Highways?

  • Thank you for your enquiry. We have visited the site and assessed the problem that you have identified. Unfortunately it does not meet our current intervention criteria so I cannot arrange a repair. We will continue to monitor this during our routine inspections, which is carried out monthly. Regards
