BT openreach broadband cable work

Reported via desktop in the Pavements category anonymously at 12:12, Sat 2 July 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This work was done nearly 4 weeks ago and despite me contacting them twice about the mess nothing has been done. The residents had no prior warning to any disruption and the pathways have been left in a right state. the slurry and dirt has settled into the recently re-surfaced tarmac and not washed away with the rain. two covers are sticking above the pathway and basically looks a mess.

Council ref: ENQ22928644

  • Totally agree with above. We had lovely new pavement in Sharland Close & then with no notice at all they were all pulled up due to Openreach. What a mess they have left us with. I had concrete on my car . What a total waste of money surely they should have done Openreach first then nice new pavements put down. Left the road looming a right mess.

  • Looks like they are about the wreck the other side of the street too, nice of them to wait until the weekend when everyone is at home.

  • And whilst they were there somehow other bits got damaged, just shows the quality of what they put down last time is just totally insufficient

  • Great again my drive blocked & mess outside. No notice at all. Dug up the pavement This is truely disgusting . Couldn't get car of drive. I would have thought by now with all the negative comments they would get it sorted by now & update let people know so they can move cars accordingly.
