Improvement suggestion: shared use path

Reported via iOS in the Highway Schemes category anonymously at 15:49, Sunday 10 October 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Could this pavement be designated a shared use path? It could also benefit from being widened as it gets overgrown very quickly.

Council ref: ENQ21907377

  • Would need to be at least doubled in width to try to keep pedestrians even slightly safe from the lunatic speeding cyclists which are increasingly infecting Witney

  • Please don't make it shared use, although some more regular maintenance would be welcome.. This path is barely wide enough for pedestrians to pass as it is, whereas the road is plenty wide enough for cyclists & a lot less busy since the new junction on the A40 was opened. Nervous cyclists can safely ride through the roads of the Burwell Farm estate, without taking much needed space from pedestrians.

  • As suggested... would need widening in order to be suitable for "shared use" status.
