Probe into Walton Street hole goes on

The Oxford Times: The mystery hole in Walton Street The mystery hole in Walton Street

One lane of Walton Street in Oxford was still closed yesterday, a day after a large hole appeared in the road.

Oxfordshire County Council shut the road southbound while Thames Water inspected the site. What caused the hole to appear has not yet been established and Oxfordshire County Council spokesman Martin Crabtree said they are in touch with Oxford City Council about what to do next.

Here's a radical idea - try fixing it. You can have your public enquiry afterwards. Idiots.

I drove down Walton Street a few times yesterday and it was open both ways. If the authorities can't even get a simple thing like is a road closed or not, what hope is there for actually getting a repair right?
