Cycle path restricted by ground vegetation

Reported in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 13:50, Friday 4 September 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The cycle way is narrow enough as it is but in areas, especially both sides of the bridges, the majority of the path is taken up by ground earth and vegetation that hasn't been cut in properly for years. You had a team cutting back the bushes but as usual nothing was done about the ground earth. The path is as wide as the road to the fencing/barriers so it needs removing in order to restore this path to full width. Please maintain the cycle ways properly in the future especially with multi-million pound spending on the A40 in the next 4 years

  • What is happening with this please? Reported many times and no action yet? You had a team of workers cutting back hedges and bramble etc but as usual they did nothing with the ground earth/grit/grass/ivy. Bit of a waste of time as you haven't improved the path like you've been promising and bragging about on twitter!!

    When will this be fixed?

  • Thank you for your report and our apologies for the delay in replying.
    Our Highways Officer has now been on site and reported back with his findings. He has requested removal of the vegetation and 'siding out' of the cycleway on both sides of the railway bridge. This will be entered in to our schedule of programmed works and our Highways Officer has requested this as a priority. Thank you and once again we apologise for the delay.
