The footpath/cyclepath on the southern side of the carriageway is overgrown

Reported via mobile in the Pavements category anonymously at 20:42, Tuesday 14 September 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Overgrown footpath/cyclepath on southern side of the carriageway, approaching the hinksey hill interchange. Makes it painful to cycle down it due to all the thistles and brambles.

It's been like this for the past 4 weeks or so.

Thanks

Council ref: ENQ21905475

    Thank you for your report. I have visited the site you pinpointed on the map, on the Southern By-Pass Road footpath/cyclepath, between the Abingdon Road roundabout and the A34 roundabout, see photos.

  • Thank you for your report. I have visited the site you pinpointed on the map, on the Southern By-Pass Road footpath/cyclepath, between the Abingdon Road roundabout and the A34 roundabout, see photos, and assessed the issue that you have identified. This overgrown vegetation that you have described, unfortunately, doesn't meet our current immediate intervention criteria, so I cannot arrange a quick repair. It has been placed/logged on the list of Minor Civils jobs to be assessed for inclusion in future programmed works, subject to there being no conflicting works and sufficient funds. We will continue to monitor this site during our routine inspections.
