Dangerous cycle path bends into the path of cars

Reported via desktop in the Potholes and maintenance category anonymously at 10:10, Friday 21 January 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The cycle path at the junction of west way and westminster way is dangerous. Cars going straight ahead (along west way) drive over the cycle path as it bends into their path. The path has been in place less than a year but the right-hand edge of it is already worn more significantly than the left-hand edge due to cars not swerving twice to avoid it. It would be safer to move the island on westminster way back slightly to allow room for the cycle path to continue straight ahead instead of swerving into the path of traffic.
