  • This trench is the responsibility of Thames Water. They are returning soon to rectify their works. Thank you for your enquiry.

  • Hmm - so it might be the 'responsibility of Thames Water', but really now, OCC need to 'Kick Ass' over this open trench lest someone gets injured / damage to vehicle / bike (OCC / Thames gets sued...). It's no good just 'passing the buck' - it need to be fixed by ANYONE, and the sooner the better. (Can OCC stop taking the 'not my problem, mate' line on road repairs and be a little more responsible / proactive / grown up, eh ?)
