  • 6 months is no use,it is literally causing drivers to swerve onto the wrong side of the road to avoid them and damage to their car, at some point there will be an accident as a result!

    Next it is causing debris to be thrown from it and you can see piles of it next to the cars parked nearby, which at some point will start to cause damage to them and as you have been warned of the potholes I believe you would be liable for the costs!

    Finally when a lorry hits them it literally causes the houses opposite to shake, which at night is waking us up, which is not good for our mental health!

  • These potholes are going to seriously injure someone. You cannot avoid as they span most of the carriageway towards Banbury. A motorcyclist was unseated today, thankfully he held it but he could have been badly injured if not for his and our fast reactions

  • The pot holes have became significantly deeper, probably 5-7 cm deep. please re-evaluate on how soon they need to be filled.
