Large pothole on busy stretch of road, just before the turning into residential road

Large pothole previously “fixed” last year has reappeared but larger and deeper above the ford that crosses underneath the road. I live local and can see cars having to swerve if they see in time and there is a gap in the traffic coming the other way
Council ref: ENQ23954789

This is, as of now, the largest pothole I've seen in my life - not including sinkholes seen on TV. Please make this top priority!

Thank you for your report. I have visited the site you pinpointed on the map, in Faringdon Road, near Gozzards Ford junction, see photos, and assessed the issue you have identified. I couldn't find the defect you refer to, at this location, see photos. The defect I did find has already been repaired, see photo. I am therefore closing this report.
We will continue to monitor this site during our routine inspections.
If you notice that the issue gets worse, please open a new report. Find out more about highway repairs and how we assess risk https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/ residents/ roads-and-transport/ street-maintenance-z/ road-repairs.
You can submit a new Fix My Street report, with the map pin positioned at the correct location of the issue, preferably with photos of the defect, and we will investigate again. Many thanks.
