The recently repaired surface in London Road, Headington, looks very stylish.

The brown stones mixed into the asphalt reflect a lot of light, making the street seem brighter.

There is nothing quite so dreary as dark black asphalt. It is not often the county council gets any praise, so I thought I would mention this.

Perhaps when the refurbishment takes place in Iffley Road they could use the same stones?
