Deep ruts in road at bus stop outside 282/284 Iffley Rd; dangerous for cyclists

The surface at this bus stop is an ongoing problem - it gets fixed, but then usually lasts only a couple of years before it subsides again.

  • It's developed again and is again dangerous for cycles and could damage cars. Can you send someone to fix it again please. I believe there's some stuff that can be used different from normal tarmac in that it's more long-lasting (that's what one of your people once told me) in areas such as this; can this be tried this time?

  • It doesn't actually last 'a couple of years'; it seems to last about six months before it needs repairing again - I've lived here for three or so years and that's been my experience anyway..

  • Getting worse. It is also reported at this site under a different tag, with a photo attached.

  • Someone did come round and put some tarmac in the two biggest holes (about six weeks ago), but the edge deterioration has got worse and the stuff they've put in the two holes proved too squidgy to retain its shape as the buses have gone on it; holes are developing again. Some longer-term fix is needed.
