I wish to follow up on my concerns of July 2018 regarding this junction.

It is now open at both ends and local residents and users regard this as dangerous and an accident waiting to happen.

Although I registered this to you last year, it seems my concerns have been ignored and the Thame road junction has not been widened to accommodate large lorries, buses etc ( including double deckers!)

I would also point out that there have been no signage to advise of road changes which is also causing confusion - school buses on the return journey in the afternoon had to travel right round the village to get to their destinations.

I look forward to your reply and your immediate attention to these ridiculous junction issues.

“Although it looks a bit tight, a larger bin lorry should be able to turn left into the new development without overrunning tactile paving/footpath. The junction radii is also 6m for a 6m wide runnable carriageway. It’s difficult to achieve any localised widening looking at the constraints we have in Thame Road. Hence, we have to wait till the entire junction has been formed so we can make a judgement
