Large tree roots lifting surface

Reported in the Countryside Paths / Public Rights of Way (usually not tarmac) category anonymously at 17:13, Sun 30 September 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 15 hours, 38 minutes later

Along this section of cycle route( note: NOT just single place where this arrow is pointing exactly but numerous points along this section) there are LARGE sudden severe lump of path rising VERTICALLY due to tree roots lifting the tarmac.This are lethal as there is no warning especially as the dark months are drawing in and there is no path lighting. These have been reported (as proved by past reports on this website) but nothing has been done to cure problem. We are going to place notices on fence nearby informing anyone that has an accident, or knows of anyone having an accident, involving hitting or swerving to avoid severe unofficial speed bumps that local authorities and sustrans have been informed for many months of this lethal hazard to enable them to sue the relevant responsible people who have failed to carry out safety work to remove these pipes. In the mean time we request that this national cycle path is closed and removed from local/national maps/guides until this and the bridges to north(see separate report)and pipes again to north are fixed as all 3 hazards are in the space of such a small section of path.

  • Thank you for your report. We will both raise with Sustrans and carry out an inspection ourselves.

    The decision to remove this section from the National Cycle Network rests solely with Sustrans. Suggest you contact them directly outside of the FixMyStreet platform as this is not a programme which they regularly monitor.
