Traffic lights/crossing desperately needed to allow pedestrians and cyclists to use the Pear Tree P&R

As a cyclist who parks at Pear Tree P&R I am frustrated and sometimes put in danger when leaving and approaching the area. There is currently no provision for pedestrians to safely cross the road from the park and ride to the only footpath on the other side of the road. If heading into Oxford cyclists are allowed to use the bus lane up to Wolvercote roundabout, but this is not ideal, especially in heavy rush hour traffic. When approaching the park and ride from town (on the cycle path) there is no designated crossing to access the park and ride. It's a case of waiting for the traffic lights to change and nipping into the middle of the road before the traffic leaving the park and ride starts to go. This again, is not ideal. Has a crossing been considered here? I'm sure it must have been but it's certainly an issue that I feel needs addressing. I'm sure there must be many people who use this park and ride and not use the bus, which must mean that they take their lives in their hands each time they try and cross this busy road to the only path on the other side.

  • I couldn’t agree more with the original post, yet you’ve taken 6 months to come back and say “it’s not my job”! How incredibly unhelpful! Can’t you at the very least redirect the question to the appropriate department? Very poor.
