Drain too low below road surface

Reported via mobile in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 16:43, Friday 11 August 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

The drain here is so far below the road’s surface that people always drive around it (because driving over it would be like driving through a pothole). The road is very narrow and the cars swerving to avoid the hole is dangerous as they cross on to the other side of the road.

Council ref: ENQ23971913

  • This issue has not been fixed and is getting worse. Please can it be inspected. Vehicles are giving way and using the wrong side of the road to avoid now.
