Road sinking causing major dip in surface

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 18:09, Saturday 5 August 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Just by the entrance to the water reservoir the road surface has been sinking for some time. The impact means many drivers avoid the 'bounce' by driving on the opposite side of the road. This started to develop when all the heavy machinery was going into the reservoir site and continues to get worse with the heave plant being stored in the old reservoir site.
