Shared cycleway overgrown with bushes

Reported in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 10:04, Friday 4 October 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

Several bushes are encroaching on cycleway adjacent to Duke’s Meadow Drive, along the section between the Winter Gardens Way roundabouts. These create choke points and blind spots that cause potential conflicts between cyclists and children walking to and from schools (Hanwell Fields and NOA). Additionally, hedges at the roundabout prevent children from seeing oncoming road traffic. This could be a major safety problem on this busy school route. Thank you.

  • Thank you for your report. Unfortunately, the location that you are referring to is not yet adopted Highway, so we are unable to arrange any works at present. We have adopted Dukes meadow Drive to date and the bell mouth of some junctions, but not all. We are in the process of adopting Hanwell fields, which is done in stages, and can take a while. Please contact the developer in the meantime with any issues such as this. Thank you

  • Please re-read my narrative carefully; the section of cycleway to which I am referring has been there for at least ten years and is NOT in any way a part of new development. It’s Dukes Meadow Drive which, by your own admission, IS adopted. The very bushes to which I am referring were trimmed only last week, but only on the side that encroaches the road, not on the side that encroaches the cycleway/pedestrian footpath. Thank you.
