Rail needed to keep cyclists saffe

Reported anonymously at 10:15, Wed 22 May 2019

This path exits on to the cycle track. It's used by e.g. cyclists travelling between Summertown and Headington and also by children using the skate park. Because it slopes steeply, cyclists need to brake hard and turn quickly to avoid going out into the 70mph traffic. A staggered rail at the bottom of the slope would make them get off or at least slow right down. No fatalities yet? Prevention would be better than cure.

  • Can you explain why the tax payers have spent over a million pounds improving this road and it’s still at a standstill on a daily basis. This needs to be explained please.
