Snowswick lane has become an unofficial diversion since the A361 Halfpenny Bridge was closed. The whole road has seen a 1000+ fold increase in traffic and as it’s a narrow road there are significant potholes appearing throughout the entire length of the road where vehicles are pulling over and passing. Oxfordshire highways need to urgently survey the increase in traffic volumes and apply suitable traffic control measures. Buscot Wick Lane has been closed on safety grounds, compounding the problems.

These potholes have not been caused by the increase in traffic. It may be causing existing potholes to worsen, but the road has been a disgrace for years and needs to resurfaced as soon as possible. That it has been allowed to get to this state is a shocking sign of the council’s lack of road maintenance, but hardly unusual in this area.
