Our house shakes along with other neighbors at Meaden Hill when the number 13 Bus from the John Radcliffe Hospital reroute its travel and use the chicane at high speed. I know that they are doing this to avoid the traffic from the John Radcliffe to Marston and the Hybrid bus is unable to slowdown much in using the chicane. Bus this is causing consider amount of damage on my property and my neighbours.

Good afternoon. I believe that some of the buses were using the old bus terminal on Halliday Hill. The works on Halliday Hill are schedules to be finished tomorrow, and the buses will resume their usual route. If you feel that there was an issue with speeding buses, please report this to Oxford Bus Company.

Appreciate the quick reply of the the Oxford County Council. But the problem is not related to the road works that is happening at Halliday Hill street.(17/09/2019) Its the route that the Number 13 Bus takes when there is a traffic at the John Radcliffe Hospital (which is almost everyday) Instead of using the right route from the John Radcliffe to WestWing stop then Saxon Way and Halliday Hill what they do is they will not go via Saxon way but reroute and use the chicane at the corner of Meaden Hill and Halliday Hill on a high speed to reach the Halliday Hill bus stop. So basically they are using it as a some sort of U turn to avoid the traffic. What they are doing is using an alternate bus route that is not only causing shake and damage on a few houses at Meaden Hill but also because this is not a proper bus route is also causing health and safety concerns on other motorists and road users including children's that walk from here to their school nearby.
