Trench across road filled by utilities badly broken up 20X N of pedestrian crossing.

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 14:24, Sunday 1 January 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The trench the utilities dug across the road by the access lane to newly built houses 20 yards down hill from the pedestrian crossing at the entrance to Wheatley Park School is badly broken up both sides of the road. Sloppy workmanship has allowed the top scum to pull away exposing backfill at least 6inches down. A danger to cyclists or other cars should one swerve to avoid deep hole. Also there is a single hole in the middle of the road further up where petrol must have been spilt and broken the surface tarmac. While there all fill in where road on the A40 side of the pedestrian crossing has sunk and broken causing a hazard to people crossing & cyclists.

Council ref: ENQ23941321

  • I see the crater that was photographed has been filled but the work is shoddy (do you not have quality control?) as the whole trench should have been levelled at the same time. As it is there is at least a 1inch drop into it that can be felt in a vehicle (& cannot be avoided) and which will be an unnecessary hazard for cyclists.
