Repair & Maintain Our Failing Road Network

As the planning authority, and with capability and knowledge of the local area, West Oxfordshire District has the ability to make our roads better. But in the last eight years they have got worse; much worse. Latest estimates show around a £30 million backlog in urgent maintenance in West Oxfordshire alone! Residents are paying the price in vehicle damage and accidents.
