This road is falling apart

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 10:57, Monday 16 January 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Shipton Road is heavily used by school buses and regular car traffic travelling to and from the Marlborough School every day. Every winter more of the road edges break away and more potholes form. Some of these are patched up but overall the road is getting more and more dangerous to drive on. It is getting narrower and narrower as the edges break away and I feel like I'm taking my life in my hands every time I have to pass a school bus. Please could this road be made a priority for a complete resurfacing and general widening? In the meantime, please could the current potholes and crumbling road edges be patched? Thank you very much.
