  • These potholes are large, deep and on a dangerous section of road with double white lines. It's appears negligent that this has been report and logged but is still not repaired. As the pot holes are not avoidable cars are now swerving across the double white lines into the opposite carriageway. This is also a primary ambulance route from the ambulance depot in Adderbury.

  • These two potholes are very bad, if you hit at speed it will damage the car. They have had a yellow 'X' put into both of them, but they do need to be fixed as a matter of priority given this is a key route to and from Junction 10 of the motorway connecting villages to the North who wish to go southbound and avoid having to go via Banbury. At the moment given that i know the potholes exist now travel if coming back from Bicester go via Croughton. Not ideal as this adds extra movements to an already congested village with traffic calming pinch points.

  • Please see picture evidence that these craters need urgent attention and waiting 4 months for potential repair isn't really a viable option, as said it is a danger to road users and it is a known hotspot for accidents to occur. This needs a proper repair and the rest of the road looking at as there are craters forming along the white lines.
