Significant pothole in middle of road

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 15:24, Tuesday 18 April 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

There is an ever-increasing pothole on the B481 close to the junction with Stoke Row Road and Blounts Court Road in Sonning Common. The pothole has increased significantly in recent times, beginning as a smaller pothole near to the central white line (in the direction of Reading) but has now got so bad it has expanded to the oncoming lane of traffic away from Sonning Common. There is also another deep, and expanding, pothole just up from this pothole, which is on the left hand side in the direction of Reading nearer to the junction with Blounts Court Road. It is incredibly difficult to miss both potholes, and therefore spare both sides of your vehicle from damage, without crossing the central white line. The latter presents an entirely separate risk.
