  • This hole is getting deeper and bigger and now causing cars to swerve to miss it. Must be looked at ASAP

  • This has been marked with spray paint but has now been over a month and this hole is now very dangerous. There is a hole on the kerb side so people are swerving to miss both holes on a blind corner. This is now VERY DANGEROUS this must be looked at ASAP before an accident happens.

  • I have hit this pothole twice in the past week and it is now large and deep enough (more than 50mm) to cause substantial wheel and tyre damage, as well as being a major safety hazard, as it is on a blind bend. Plus all paint markings have long since gone. Lives are at risk here!!! GET IT FIXED!!

  • There has been a huge pothole, getting bigger, as you turn left off the B4525 Welsh Lane, onto Banbury Lane for some time. It is difficult to miss it in daylight, but I hit it tonight at 8pm in the dark. This caused a massive bang underneath my car. If I have damaged my suspension, I will be contacting the council ASAP!! - so please note!! This is dangerous enough, but then there are also 3 further potholes further on towards Thorpe Mandeville. A fatal accident occurred here several years ago with a car swerving to avoid a pothole. There are now 3 very large holes in the road. All of these mentioned are on blind bends and none have been marked with paint or any warnings. Accidents are waiting to happen!!

  • I belted my car on this last night ... the pothole was full of water so it was impossible to see it. Luckily having hit some of the ones closer to the B4525 I had slowed right down but I will be watching my car for wheel damage and it's getting its alignment checked now as well. The noise it made as the car went down it was awful. I'm disgusted to see how long it has taken to get this problem fixed, having come on here to report it, and will be billing the council should any work need doing on my car after this as I can see that there are SIX MONTHS of awareness recorded here. This needs sorting urgently, there is no avoiding this one and it is deep - there were several others on this stretch that are going the same way, sort it out!
