The road surface there was atrocious before the OVO Tour of Britain cycle race came through a few years ago. OCC managed a bit of top dressing but that's all. Thanks to Cllr Hudspeth and his cronies Oxfordshire's roads are some of the worst in the country.  

Motorists pay a fortune in taxes which get squandered on anything but decent highway maintenance. Potholes everywhere that damage vehicles, but are even more of a threat to cyclists. I dread coming across one legitimately swerving to avoid potholes.

That's where a county councillor can be helpful! I have spoken to one of the officers and he is going to see what can be done. But I don't expect it to be done immediately.

When I raised this through FixMyStreet back in early January, the response that I got was: “I have visited the site and assessed the problem that you have identified. Unfortunately it does not meet our current intervention criteria so I cannot arrange a repair. We will continue to monitor this during our routine inspections.”  Not only is the surface deteriorating, but the loose gravel is a skid risk and gets washed into the kerb gullies, helping to block them up ..... again.

I  agree and I have asked for it to be added to the list of roads to be resurfaced.

The road surface just down from Wellington cottages seems to be getting worse by the day.
