Sunken manhole

Reported via desktop in the Manhole category anonymously at 08:59, Friday 11 August 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

This manhole has been gradually sinking for a long time. This causes the road surface around it to break up resulting in a cycle of constant poor fixes. Within a few months and as winter arrives this will happen again. fact is that manhole is sinking and needs resetting - this is the only way to get a proper fix. In the meantime, it will continue to be an escalating hazard for all road users.
