Resuracing without notice. Now road is left as gravel. No communication.

Reported in the Carriageway Defect category anonymously at 01:53, Tue 2 July 2019

Sent to Oxford City Council 1 minute later

They spray painted on road 1 day before resuracing (30.7.19 was sprayed on road) (to remove cars parked on road). Then 1.7.19 at 7am they knocked on doors to move car. (my day off!) No communication saying how long they will be. Now we have a gravel road. There was nothing wrong with our road, suspect inapropriate use of council funds. I commute and there are many roads more worthy of Oxfordshire council funds! They haven't informed us of further works to our road. It's a 3rd world mess please help!

  • Thank you for your report, I can advise our contractors, should hand delivers letters to resident of the street a couple of days before they are due to start work along with signage, unfortunately the surface dressing is weather dependant and therefore there are slippages in their programme from time to times. We will be meeting them next week and will raises these issue with them.
