I have contacted Hounslow Traffic and they have asked to contact you to bring forward resurfacing of Oxford Road South. I have lived here for over 20 years and the road is always full of potholes. It needs resurfacing. When I have complained before someone comes around fills a single random pothole and then claims problem is resolved on your website. I have spoken to other residents and we can start a petition for resurfacing if that helps escalate this.

  • The road surface in Oxford Road South is appalling, the worst I have seen in the country, let alone the borough, with dozens of potholes along its entire length. Several repairs have been completed, but this never fixes the problem as the potholes invariably open up again, which is a waste of council money. Thames Water resurfaced an area in front of no53 to no57, which is still in immaculate condition more than a decade after the repair. Please apply the same logic to the rest of Oxford Road South.

  • There have been so many small repairs to Oxford Road South, but as you can see from the photos the repair remains unstable as the area next to it becomes vulnerable, creating another pothole instead of fixing the problem. PLEASE RESURFACE THE WHOLE (or should that be hole!) STREET.
