Council fills holes UNDER the road in Garsington
We have been working with Thames Water to fix a rather complex underground problem on Oxford Road, Garsington.
Around a week ago a water leak was reported, substantial damage to the road surface was noticed and, following investigation, it was thought that water from a leaking mains pipe could have undermined the road.
While making repairs to their apparatus Thames Water team unearthed another problem – some more unrelated cavities under the road. After some hi-tech ground penetrating radar surveys and excavation the county council’s highway team worked together to come up with a plan to fill in the voids and resurface the road.
All being well the road should be reopened at the start of the week.
