End of Sandy Lane all broken up and full of pot holes.

Reported via desktop in the Current Roadworks category anonymously at 13:17, Monday 15 May 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Thames Water were using Sandy Lane for all there HGV water tankers for 24hrs a day through December and January while works were being carried out at the nearby water treatment site. Thames Water sent letters stating that road damage had been acknowledged and repairs would be carried out, but this has not been done and the road surface is becoming a pothole slalom. An official Highways sign that has been at the entrance to Sandy Lane for many years stating "No access to Thames Water vehicles" was also removed and hasn't been replaced.
