New estate pathway leads directly onto main busy road without a crossing.

Dear Team I wonder if you could direct me to where I might find what is happening to the new footpath that runs along the back of Barley Fields between the new estate and Barley Fields. It currently ends bluntly and directly onto the busy Didcot/Wantage Road and there is great difficulty in viewing vehicles approaching from either side. It is proving a very dangerous place to cross for all at the moment. Are there any plans to extend the footpath on the same side to join up with the existing footpath along Didcot/Wantage Road heading to town? Many thanks Linda

  • Dear Team, I have attached some photos for your interest as you can see visibility is bad left and right and leads straight onto the road. If the vegetation was cut back on both sides and then a small path created on the RHS to join up with the existing path running along the road near Barleyfields, this should do the trick. But I can't find any plans to join up this path. Many thanks. Linda
