Abismal road repair

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 11:18, Wed 1 December 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Whoever signed off the repair work on the slip road to the A40 needs sacking. This bit of the slip road has been repaired at least 3 times and it fails after a month or so each time. I have already hit a large pothole in the opposite side of the road before which caused substantial damage to my car, I don’t want it happening again. It is an accident waiting to happen, vehicles accelerating to join the dual carriageway, and at night, it is barely visible til the last minute, causing drivers to take avoiding action. Imagine a motorcycle hitting it with an HGV on the inside lane. This small stretch of the slip road needs repairing properly, not the usual waste of time, money and effort patchwork. Maybe the Health and Safety of the public is not a priority compared to your balance sheets? This needs sorting as a matter of urgency, I’m sure the local MP would have something to say about it.
