  • Problem needs to be addressed within 48hours. Pothole has got worse and is about 15cm-30cm deep in places covering most of the road. As an employee for Oxfordshire county council I believe that if this was in our county it would be addressed within 24-48hrs because of a risk to further damaging cars and potential liability against the council.
