Road subsidence causing damage to houses

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 12:58, Thursday 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.
