Huge trench on the side of the road - dangerous when filled with rain

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 13:04, Monday 11 March 2024

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This trench has been expanding over the last year or more, and is now a serious danger to anyone who doesn't know it is there (especially cyclists). It is approx. 3m long and approx. 2m wide, and approx. 30cm deep in places. When it rains it just looks like a big puddle, but if anyone unknowingly went into it they'd be likely to damage the underside of their car and/or tyres, or be injured if on a push or motor bike.
