Deep jagged pothole plus smaller one and public highway degrading and sinking

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category by John Kateley at 06:18, Thursday 21 March 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5745954.

The pothole is dangerous and could effect health and safety outside No 1 and 2 George and Dragon Close. I have filled it myself with old ashfault compacted earth and sand which remains in place for only 24 hours. The roadway has been damaged by passing HGV's normally going to the new Cala homes site in Fewcott Road, plus East Street is used as a rat run if the M40 is subjected to disruption on occasions.

Council ref: ENQ24998058
