Massive deep pothole to side of drain and road falls away on dangerous corner

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 18:51, Monday 14 May 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later. Council ref: 855853.

There is a massive pothole to the side of the drain. It is very deep on a sharp shelf down and into the drain cover. It is on a corner so that when another car is coming round the corner there is no option but to go into it. It has caused massive damage to my front left tyre, causing a 5 inch rip in the inside of the tyre where the rim sliced into the rubber. The next morning as I reversed the tyre exploded. It was very loud and very disconcerting. I have no idea how long this hole has been there. It is extremely dangerous in my view.

  • I find it in-explicable that OCC have failed to respond to my registered letter and email about this matter and my burst tyre months later. Also that you have fixed the massive hole only but nothing around it so the side of the road is still in shocking condition.
