Large subsided pit

Reported in the Carriageway Defect category anonymously at 12:54, Mon 20 May 2019 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Oxford City Council 2 minutes later

Large deep dip / pit in road surface causing passing lorries and busses to pitch and shake the foundations of surrounding houses like an earthquake. Cracks starting to appear in these houses. The effect is very distressing for them and also dangerous for passing traffic particularly cyclists! The situation has existed for a year or more but with recent heavier traffic is getting much worse. I fear the drainage system could be collapsing.
