Sleepers on road edge crumbling

Reported via desktop by Steve Lisansky at 14:51, Tuesday 21 February 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and South Oxfordshire District Council less than a minute later

Some years ago you installed sleepers along the road adjoining our properrty. Two weeks ago the road was repaired and several sleepers extracted and replaced, although this movement caused them to almost disintergrate. In addition to the two shown, several others are in an advanced state of decay. The road is narrow here and disintegrating sleepers pose a danger to motorists and cyclists. I am willing to pay for the replacement sleepers myself, but do not have the strength at 75, or the specific knowledge to replace them myself. I am afraid if the crumbling sleepers are not replaced, they and the soild bank will fall into the road, and that the others will disintegrate more quickly. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
