The pavement on the Oxford-bound side between the A 420 and Seacourt Park & Ride junctions is a hazard to road users, cyclists, and pedestrians.
The cycle path is not present along this stretch of pavement, but is present either end of it. This leads cyclists to cycle on the pavement here. This has been a notable change since the local cycle route improvements.
The ambiguity due to lack of cycle path markings often results in near-collisions of cyclists and pedestrians, and risks cyclists hesitating and veering into a passing vehicle.
The risk is further worsened by the overgrown willow tree boughs hanging across the pavement, which pedestrians may unpredictably sidestep to avoid.
I have witnessed 3 dismounted cyclists in serious conditions along this stretch in the past few months, so I felt it was important to recommend clearer signage along this path.
Thank you for your suggestion, it will be added to a list which are assessed and prioritised by our Safety Team. We will now close this report, but if your suggestion gets selected for action we will let you know.
