I reported a leak coming up through the tarmac to Thames Water over a week ago. It has not yet been fixed. The amount of water coming through has increased and now, in the last 24 hours, the road appears to be subsiding with a 5 to 10cm dip in the tarmac. The surrounding tarmac moves just by pressing it with my foot. The road is on a bus route and subject to other heavy traffic. I am concerned that it might give way completely and cause a serious accident. I have reported the leak to Thames Water again this morning.

Thank you for your report. I have visited the site you pinpointed on the map, in Townsend, Opposite Latton Close junction, Chilton and assessed the issue you have identified. I couldn't find the defect you refer to, at this location, see photos. 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.
