Large pothole and loose drain hole cover

Reported via desktop in the Manhole category by Stephen North at 14:44, Tuesday 24 January 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

On Grove street there is a loose drain hole cover and a large pothole around it. It looks as if it has gotten much worse in the last few days and I think it needs urgent action. Left hand side of road coming down hill from Sainsbury's petrol station before you get to the garage on the right. I think it's Elms Cottage.

Council ref: ENQ23946098

  • When is this going to be fixed? It was reported a month ago. This drain has been fixed so many times over the years so many times, please repair properly this time. I live on this street and it is such a disturbance, the noise vibrates up the pipe and into the house. please at least mark it with white paint to highlight to road users! It’s so dangerous.
