Large deep potholes and significant damage to road surface

Reported via mobile in the Roads and Carriageways category anonymously at 09:34, Wednesday 21 February 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5608296.

The road surface at the junction of church lane and mill street is is terrible condition. There are large deep potholes that are unavoidable and huge amount of surface damage along the front of the houses. In front of my house where the tarmac has worn away causes large puddles that cannot run away to the drain and therefore deep into my cottage walls. It has been this way for a very long time and with the increased flooding of the area is deteriorating quickly. This whole section of road needs to be resurfaced and measures should be taken to consider flooding.

  • I am sending you some photos of a pothole at the junction of Mill Street and Church Lane, ISLIP near where I live. I live on Mill Street; my postcode is OX5 2SY and I have to drive to avoid the pothole frequently.

    Last week while trying to avoid the pothole I damaged one of my tyres badly and it had to be replaced. I can send separately the invoice for the replacement tyre (which has been paid).

    I wish to claim for the replacement tyre (£113.13). Please tell me how to proceed.
