Cyclist right turn from Blackbird Leys Road into Sandy Lane West barely feasible

(For general view of junction see: maps/ @51.7239672,-1.2084065,3a,75y,79.23h,61.46t/ data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1scNKrQwEOHd-UtxoYAKjyVg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 ).

The narrowing carriageway is presumably to persuade cyclists to stay in the separate cycle lane - so far, so good. However, neither of the next two (short) dropped kerb sections is suitable for turning right; the first is clearly meant for exiting the roundabout from SLW, and the second is after the junction, leading only to a narrow, unprotected non-island in the centre of the road.

  • Thank you for your report. Unfortunately we have no record of why a right turn onto the roundabout was not included in the original design. However, we do not have any funding to incorporate a dropped kerb at present..
