Road subsidence causing damage to houses

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 12:58, Thu 3 February 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

There is an area of road way which is showing clear signs of subsidence, which appears to be as a result of constant use of mainly farming traffic. This road is used by large farm tractors and often pulling large fully laden trailers. I can feel my house shake when these farm vehicles drive past (often at speeds far in excess of a safe practice). This road is also used by buses and coaches and other heavy vehicles such as garbage disposal. I am aware other residents in this area have reported damage to their houses and this subsidence may be as a result of heavy traffic or a cause of structural damage. I request a survey be conducted on this road area and residents consulted.

  • Good morning, can this matter be escalated please. There have been a number of reports of erosion, subsidence and heavy traffic affecting building structure and quality of life. Drains are clearly blocked with debris which is adding to the problems on this part of the road. The subsidence is getting worse and this is evident simply by sight.
