Cycle lane markings

Following the resurfacing of the road , the cycle lane appears to have been overlooked when new markings were repainted . Plus following my previous requests with the road closed overnight this would have been a good opportunity to repaint the full length of Stratton way . This request has now been put to the Abindon cycle infrastructure plan .

100% Agreed. The total fading of The Cycle Lane markings for a several hundred yard stretch of busy Stratton Way is a glaring problem. Its not like this is a quiet cul de sac. As a cyclist I can feel oncoming drivers from Ock St tyring to figure out whats up ahead when pulling into The Way from Bath Street. For several hundred yards Im just thinking have they seen me?Do they realise theres supposed to be a cycle lane under me? I have to make sweeping finger gestures to and fro with my right hand as I ride in the manner of The Belgian Police to point out the non existent cycle Lane. The Stratton Way resurfacing closure only dealt with the bus stop stretch of road. The Cycle Lanes there have been removed it appears! The Policy seems to be No Cycle lane in Stratton Way?

I cycle along here regularly. I was about to ask if this road and others now in the 20mph limit will have cycle markings painted in the middle of the road, similar to Abingdon Rd heading into central Oxford. Or have a cycle lane that is at the current LTN 1/20 standard of 2metres. The previous cycle lane along here is not wide enough, or to use the slang, is a 'murder strip'.
Given there is frequently oncoming car traffic and queuing in the opposite lane, there isn't enough room for a car to safely overtake. I assume primary position along this stretch, which is generally better for preventing unsafe overtakes, but this weekend I had one driver shout at me as he squeezed past (if I'd had my camera on I would have reported to TVP).
