Dangerous pinch point in path

Reported via desktop in the Pavements category anonymously at 20:12, Thu 10 December 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

There is an area of path that is so overgrown that I have to walk so far over towards the road I am in great danger of being hit by a car door mirror as they navigate the central barrier on Cogs Hill Road, as indicated on the map attached. It is all very much over grown but especially dangerous where indicated with the arrow. I have walked this path almost every day for the last 3 years and have never seen the headge cut back and it is getting worse and worse, barely room for one and to pass someone need to go on the road.

  • Illustration of pinch point. This coincides with the road change that causes traffic to move over to the left dangerously close to pedestrians because of the path restriction.
