Safety Barrier Removed

Reported in the Pavements category anonymously at 20:51, Wed 22 May 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

The galvanised safety barriers are removed for no reason now leaving a clear run from the cycleway / footpath to the main Buckingham Road, I have also reported the same for Holm Square. OCC said ' nothing to do with them' but upon speaking to Tim Green from Cherwell Council he confirmed all the cycleways / footpaths are owned / managed by OCC. This is a concerning safety issue so needs rectifying asap

  • No one seems to know who has removed all the safety barriers but comes under OCC jurisdiction and needs replacing

  • Not a lot seems to be happening and no updates at all from anyone anywhere. Bit of a tumbleweed moment, does ' fixmystreet' work?

  • I have ascertained that OCC did remove barriers to improve cycling etc. They appear to of not risk assessed for safety of children who can now run straight out.
