FRIDESWIDE Square has had its fair share of problems in the past, with narrow roundabouts and cracks in the pavements among the most recent.

But it was the cobbles proving a pain in the late 1990s as people complained they were 'too cobbly'.

This photo from 1999 shows workmen outside Oxford Station getting to work on replacing the cobbles.

The workmen had been told to level out the pavement as the cobbles were too uneven, filling in the gaps to make it flat.

It is not the only time paving work in the area has had to be re-done after problems.

Frideswide Square was overhauled to the tune of £6.7m during 2016 and 2017 but teething problems once it was complete meant it soon had to be improved.

Bus companies argued the layout meant larger vehicles struggled to navigate the new roundabouts and meant pavements nearby were crumbling.
