Removal of pedestrian crossing without alternative

There is no way to cross from Oxford to Botley and vice versa. Two pedestrian crossings removed and none replaced. Therefore people are trapped and cannot cross without endangering themselves. There is no longer a safe passage from the school on elms road to Oxford. There is no safe passage for any pedestrian in Botley to Oxford or back. One crossing on westway just after the bridge removed and once crossing on westminster way removed. It is absolutely impossible to cross anywhere else. There is a crossing on elms parade across westway but that simply connecting the two sides of road it doesn’t connect to the pedestrian passage under the a34 that goes to Oxford. Pupils going to yhe school on elms road are crossing without proper view on a highway hidden behind roadwork signs, skips and cones. Please fix this asap before we have fatalities

Thank you for your report. I have visited the site you pinpointed on the map, at the junction of Westminster Way & West Way, see photo. I am re-assigning this report to the Street Works (NSWRA)\Network Management (South)\Network Coordination (South) Team to assess, investigate and draft a response to.

1. The crossing across Westway nearest the flyover closed. Pedestrians are directed to use the crossing opposite the shops. This main crossing point has been kept in operation 24hrs as agreed with OCC due the school nearby and the shops. This crossing is approx. 80m from the other crossing. 2. The crossing across Westminster way closed. But traffic here is now down to one lane and is one way only. And a signed crossing point is in place very close to the original.
All crossing points are clearly marked and we constantly ensure plant and materials are not blocking views at these areas.
