Heavy trucks use Coopers Gate road for turning

Reported in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 20:31, Sat 25 January 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

Heavy trucks (typically delivery trucks for Fine Lady Bakery) use Coopers Gate road as a shortcut for turning around rather than driving down to the next circle at the intersection of High Street. This is a residential area heavy with pedestrians who use the footpath through Coopers Gate to Castle Quay and school children who walk to the nearby St. Mary's School. If we could please get a "no heavy vehicles" sign at the top of Coopers Gate it would help avoid a tragic accident and reduce the fading of road marking.

  • Spoke to one of the truck drivers doing a u-turn in Coopers Gate. He said his satnav shows an entrance to the Fine Lady bakery. Clearly an old map from before the Coopers Gate houses were built. Ideally need a sign at entrance to Coopers Gate indicating no entrance to the factory.
