Deep pothole

Reported via Android in the Pothole category anonymously at 16:13, Wed 19 June 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later. Council ref: 1667237.

Very deep pothole at edge of road, traveling West on b4597 - see location. Other potholes around it and on both sides of the road were repaired today (19/7) - why on earth want this one fixed at the same time?

  • I have damaged my wheel as this still hasn't been filled, I am going to claim for my damage as it is unacceptable..... I was on my own when this happened and resulted in a puncture and a damaged rim, I have photos of these also.

  • This is completely unacceptable. I collided with this pothole yesterday at 17:50 and not only do I need two new tyres, I have just found out I'm going to need two new wheels too. Another person had also damaged his wheels in the same five minutes as myself. This needs sorting as a matter of urgency. The expense for this is going to be £800 plus and I will be claiming compensation from the county council for this cost. I sincerely hope that this doesn't happen to anyone else.

  • It is totally unacceptable this pothole has not been fixed so long after it was first reported. It really is exceedingly dangerous. I hit the pothole about 5 minutes before the car above did. I was just walking back to inspect it when the above accident happened. As with the above both of my tires were blown & i had to have my car recovered on a pickup truck. The pothole is so deep that we were both very lucky not to have a serious crash & it was full of water so was almost impossible to see in the dark. This needs to be fixed as a matter of urgency before someone is seriously hurt. I had the tires replaced today at a cost of £236.97. I will now take the car into a garage to check that there isn't further damage. I will be claiming compensation from the council for all expenses incurred.
