Deteriorating road surface

Reported in the Carriageway Defect category anonymously at 12:56, Sat 6 April 2019

Sent to Oxford City Council 4 minutes later

This road is deteriorating fast due to continuous heavy traffic on the major road to and from the bypass to the hospital. My house shudders when lorries, coaches and massive HGVs drive past. It's like they are driving on a dirt track with the amount of banging and crashing they make! The road is cracking up. Nothing is being done at the Headley Way junction, why not fix the rest of the road instead of only part of it!!
