Blind spots and no railings

Sent to Cherwell District Council and Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This is a pathway on Bellenger Way which leads to Broad Close and Yarnton Road. I often walk past this pathway (from the Exeter Hall towards Grovelands and return) with my two young children. We walk on the pavement and when we approach this pathway from either side, we can't see if there are any bicycles coming towards the main road unless we actually stand in the junction. One time when we were about to walk past the pathway, a cyclist was coming out of the pathway at high speed and nearly knocked us down. I really hope that some sort of railings will be put there so that the cyclists will need to dismount or slow down before they come on to the pavement.
