Ongoing issue with road subsidence - 3rd report

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later
The below report has been made by at least two residents, with additional reports of other damage in the same road area. The previous report says it has been fixed, but all that has been done is a couple of pot holes have been filled in near the entrance to the pub. This needs to be escalated and investigated correctly, as the road around the drainage holes are seriously degrading, and the roadway is sinking even more since last report. I understand this is a major work, but houses are experiencing cracks in walls and serious shaking when vehicles drive past, and the road and drainage is at serious risk of substantial damage.
'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'.
