Road is too narrow and badly made.

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 17:35, Thursday 2 March 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The road leading away from Woodstock is too narrow and also on an angle which will be dangerous in icy conditions. Due to the amount of coaches that use this road to service Marlborough School you would think this would have been considered. I have witnessed two near misses of vehicles colliding and they were not travelling at speed.

Council ref: ENQ23950071

  • I completely agree. This is a dangerous junction due to the road narrowing immediately after turning (going east) and the slope at the bend leading your vehicle into the middle of the road

    Curbing to the south side of the junction must be moved backwards to allow opposing traffic to safely pass each other

  • Dear Hazel,

    We are working with the developer, contractor and OCC Network Management to complete the works to adoptable standards and in a timely manner. Please note, the current layout is temporary. We are impressing the importance of finishing the highway works to the developer.

    Kind regards
