The granite kerbs on Orchard Coombe are either displaced, or sunk almost into the road surface.

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

In June I reported: The granite kerbs are either displaced, or sunk almost into the road surface, creating a real tripping hazard, particularly for young children. Some, what can only be described as temporary fixes were completed in the last year or two, but are already failing, a permanent repair is needed for the full length. It is only a matter of time before someone is badly injured, or worse, by stumbling into the road in front of a vehicle using Orchard Coombe as a “rat run”. The photographs are just a sample of the problem." Your response was: We have investigated your report and have decided to continue to monitor the location during our routine inspections. If you notice that the issue gets worse, please open a new report" . The situation gets worse by the day, no amount of "monitoring" will improve it. I do not know what it will take to get proper repairs done, this issue has been going on for years!
