A sunken trench across the width of the road

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 14:44, Friday 12 August 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This trench was previously refilled a couple of years ago but began dropping again after about a year. It now has a very sharp edge which causes vehicles to drop which obviously causes a great deal of noise but more importantly it significantly shakes the houses in our small development which are 20-30 metres away. I can hear the thumping as I am writing this. It may not look bad but it is the noisiest carriageway defect on Faringdon Road

Council ref: ENQ22931525

  • I posted my original statement about the ‘trench’ in August and now see a ‘man with shovel’ graphic on the map. Does this mean that action is going to be taken about this incredibly noisy fault?
