Road surface generally in Eynsham Road shaking houses, which in turn is causing damage to property.

The road surface generally between Tilbury Lane and Deanfield Road on the Eynsham Road is now crossed by so many sunken pipe and cable laying trenches and irregularities - some stemming from the relaying of the main sewer some years ago which has weakened the surface of the road itself - that houses especially on the north side are being shaken by heavy traffic passing, even though these houses are reasonably set back from the road, This shaking can occur both at the front and the back of the house, sometime a little, but quite often quite badly.

Thank you for your report. I have visited the site you pinpointed on the map, in front of 30 Eynsham Road B4044, see photos, and assessed the 'Road surface generally in Eynsham Road shaking houses, which in turn is causing damage to property' issue you have identified. The small defects I did find, however, unfortunately, don't meet our current intervention criteria so I cannot arrange a repair. We will continue to monitor this site during our monthly routine inspections.
If you notice that the issue gets worse, or if you notice any specific defects, on this section of carriageway, that you are concerned about, please raise as a new FixMyStreet report, pinpointing the exact location.
We will continue to monitor this site during our routine monthly inspections. Find out more about highway repairs and how we assess risk, see web page: https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/ residents/ roads-and-transport/ street-maintenance-z/ road-repairs.
Note, however, that the deteriorating road surface issue, in this section of carriageway, has been submitted, in the past, to our Asset Renewals Team, as a Non-Safety Defect for their assessment and appraisal. Any major works have to go to this team, who consider this request, along with many others, for inclusion in future programmed works, subject to there being no conflicting works and sufficient funds.
I am, therefore, re-assigning this report to the Asset Renewals Team, to assess and investigate the "Road surface generally in Eynsham Road shaking houses, which in turn is causing damage to property" issue.

If you are unable to fix the road . Despite the increased council tax charge, the reduction in grass verge cutting. How about a weight limit to try and protect this falling road. Would a speed reduction reduce the vibration.?

Please be advised that some remedial surface repairs are booked in for the 15 and 16 June. Only the worst sections can be done at this time due to budgetary constraints. The Eynsham Road has been on the list for resurfacing some time, however other locations have had to take priority. We will continue to do what we can to hold things together until the road gets into the resurfacing programme.
