The only way on and off the ring road cycle path is here - you must dodge fast traffic coming on/off the ring road.

The barriers at the top and bottom of this vital passage connecting the ring road and Rose Hill cycle paths are very narrow and you can only just get a big bike (family cargo/tandem) through. Most mixed ability cycles would be barred from u ... [more]

Mandatory cycle lane needed here

GWR need to make their Inter City Express Trains able to easily take tandem bicycles so disabled people are not discrimintated against when they ride with their partners. Bad for tourism!

Closure to motor vehicles to allow social distancing

Closure to motor vehicles to allow social distancing

Light posts interfere with cycle path making it a dangerous way up with the cars passing by at maximum speed

Overhanging vegetation is blocking part of the shared pedestrian/cycleway

There are brand new cycle lanes on both side of this road and they would be great except cars and delivery vehicle park all over them and make them more dangerous than if they didn't exist. They need to bollard them off all the way along bo ... [more]

This is a great new cycle way that has been built but cars and delivery vehicles just park all over it making it useless and more dangerous than if it didn't exist. They need to put bollards all the way along both sides to prevent parking ... [more]

This road is one of many used as a rat run by very fast drivers at rush hour to get to and from the Quarry junction to the ring road. It should be turned into a Low Traffic Neighbourhood.

Access to and from the ramp for the short recently constructed on pavement cycle path has been blocked for weeks by car registration number BO53 TTR. Double yellow lines are required to restore access and prevent recurrent obstruction.

Iffley Road. Leaving Oxford there is an intermittent cycle way and narrow pavements. Cars parked make it dangerous for cyclists as they move out past them. Needs to get rid of on street parking.

The section passing Wood Farm has a great new cycle path that is wide enough but past the r'bout here the roadway is wide enough for a good wide cycle lane but what is painted is far too narrow and is positively dangerous at the points wher ... [more]

When coming out of Swinburne Road and heading towards the river, if you want to reach the segregated cycle path you have to either cross the road and cross back, or cycle on the pavement. Making this short stretch of pavement shared would a ... [more]

If cycling straight on at these traffic lights when travelling south, it can be hard to know where to position in the road without getting in the way of traffic or getting squeezed in the cycle lane. Some cycle markings in the middle of car ... [more]

The point at which cyclists have to leave the shared pavement and join the road is about 1 metre too early - it feels alarmingly like coming off the pavement straight into a stream of traffic. Just a metre of extra shared pavement would ma ... [more]

Cyclists who come from the Barracks Lane/Marsh Park cycle route to go up Temple Road risk collision with cars travelling too fast up Marsh Road into Crescent Road and vice versa. Drivers often assume that cyclists are travelling the same r ... [more]

Busy junction at intersection of Marsh Road and Oxford/Cowley Road with nearby bus stop, no cycle lanes, bad road surface, cars parked along road and large vehicles turning in and out of Marsh Road from the Council depot. This area is used ... [more]

There should be a traffic light at this dangerous junction with a waiting area for cyclists in front of motor traffic.

These roads (Div, Southfield and side streets) should be access only

James St, fast traffic, narrow road and pavements, needs closing between St Mary's Rd and James St to stop through traffic

Same problem as at the St.Clements entrance to the roundabout - the right-turn cycle lane is in the wrong place, putting cyclists to the left of cars that may cut across them to exit on to the Cowley Road.

Cowley Road is dangerous for cyclists.

There are long sections of this path where there are parallel paths which have been very overgrown. Clearing these areas would allow segregation of cyclists and pedestrians making it safer for both

Iffley Rd is too narrow for cyclists,buses and rush hour traffic. It needs to have wide pavements and wide cycle lanes. It could be part of a congestion charge for people coming in to the city ho do not live in the postcode

Where the two chicanes are on Sandford Road, they need to be regularly swept and weeds removed so there is space to use them

Resident, delivery, taxi and bus-only access. We must move towards a car-free environment. Non-residents need to find other ways of getting into town.

The pavements on the hill section of Old Road are too narrow to social distance, and cycling here can be very intimidating and dangerous especially for children travelling to Cheney or Windmill. Now that the buses go through the Churchill s ... [more]

Prior to the pandemic there was a problem with rat running through many roads within the block. A full time filtered closure at the junction of Margaret/York road, along with those suggested at quarry High street/Road and on St Leonards Roa ... [more]

It is impossible to pass on the pavement at a safe distance, and scary to step into the traffic, especially walking with children, particularly on the East side

Bus gate as part of Flo Park LTN.

Filter as part of Flo Park LTN.

This gateway should be made permanent, not permissive.

The road allows cyclists to turn in using a cycle path however it is almost always impossible to use. Either it is full of glass or someone has parked illegally. It would be better if it was raised and clearly not to be used for parking.

This footpath is too narrow and poorly maintained. It feels unsafe.

The whole stretch from Magdalen Bridge and past Rose Lane is full of potholes and manholes, making cycling hazardous. This is especially the case when there is much cycle, car and bus traffic: going over one of these holes can easily cause ... [more]

Needs a wheel-ramp up the side of the bridge for prams and bikes

Forget all the tediously practical and useful suggestions being made on this website. We REALLY REALLY need a bridge here there is a huge pent up demand from all the cyclists and pedestrians stuck at the back of the ice rink unable to comp ... [more]

Cycle access onto A40 needs improving

Stop putting christmas markets here, it's a key cycle route throught the city that the Council seem happy to block every year. Put the market where the car parking spaces are and the road is much wider than needed by the cars.

Instead of providing a filter lane for vehicles, use the space to provide a refuge filter for cycling from Rymers Lane to Beauchamp Lane and vice versa so that there is a safe crossing for the cycle route

Closure to vehicles so that Beauchamp Lane becomes a street for walking and cycling as it is is part of a cycle route from E Oxford to Blackbird Leys

The new junction here should maintain the right of way of those on the cycle path, as it has been installed it's yet another place where cyclists and pedestrians have to stop and give way

If this were Holland or Denmark there would be cycle track under each side of the roundabout. The money has been found to put a bridge over the top for the bypass, if cycling and walking is to be seriously promoted underpasses are needed so ... [more]

There is a cycle route from Cherwell Drive to Ashlong Road and from Elms Drive to the crossing at Horseman Close. THERE IS NO CYCLE ROUTE BETWEEN ASHLONG AND ELMS DRIVE. This means cyclists try to cycle along the narrow footpath or have to ... [more]

The road allows cyclists to turn in using a cycle path however it is almost always impossible to use. Either it is full of glass or someone has parked illegally. It would be better if it was raised and clearly not to be used for parking.

Southbound across the roundabout is hopeless for cyclists. There should be at least explicit permission to use the bus lane and an advance box. A separate lane on the left would be even better, e.g. an on demand slot which activates out of ... [more]

As a cyclist you can’t turn in anywhere here to access the Westgate.

Closure does wonders for overall traffic flow through Oxford. But need to consult with local shops how to best create signage and access for shoppers.

There is no safe north-south path through the city for cycling. You either have to weave through pedestrians by the university church, turn left at the bottom of Turl Street straight into the buses or wiggle down very poor visibility lane u ... [more]

New path is great but please make wider like the path south of the city

Introduce 1.5 m mandatory passing room, for buses (and cars), when passing cyclists throughout Oxford, especially in narrow areas such as town end of Abingdon Road. It only requires a law and bit of patience on part of drivers.

Ensure cycle way is marked to and from bridge .....there is quite a gap with no markings.

This is the main Sustrans route into Oxford from South ..plus main route to Westgate from South. It needs to be integrated all the way into town from Marlborough Road, plus ramps and steps at both sides plus drastically improved lighting ... [more]

Stop sign needed

Click Yes! if you agree Walton St should return to normal and those who don't like should go live elsewhere!!

If you don't like Walton Street fully open, then sell up and move somewhere else. You chose to move here as it was.

North of here is very high number of multiple car ownership with both on & off street parking. All residents should stop owning/driving cars, entire area made fully pedestrian/cycling only. All roads should have picnic tables, benches to tu ... [more]

Leave Walton St open as it always has been, slightly widen pavements to prioritise pedestrians over cyclists and enable maximum social distancing for pedestrians. Traffic calming for cars shared with cyclists. Cyclists fined for parking bi ... [more]

There is no need to close Walton Street. It will create chaos for residents in side streets, create new rat runs and damage business. We don't have the climate for widespread outdoor seating - and any increase in the use of outdoor space h ... [more]

St Peter's College should enforce their policy of not permitting students to fix cycles to their railings on what is already a narrow pavement.

Pavement parking leaves insufficient pedestrian/wheelchair access even before covid. Excessive vehicle speeds - road should be closed or one way with.

Cars often do not stop, even when children are crossing. Change the zebra crossing to a traffic light crossing

Cars often do not stop, even when children are crossing. Change the zebra crossing to a traffic light crossing

Crossing to and from SS Mary & John Church at this point is risky and dangerous although it is the most logical place to cross. Add a crossing point.

There is no way for pedestrians to safely cross the London Road to Morrell Avenue at this point. Add a crossing.

There is a two-way cycle track that suddenly begins/ ends here with a confusing crossing shared with pedestrians. Usage needs to be clarified/ made safer.

Create a (two-way) cycle track here making use of the wide verges so that cyclists going from Warneford Road/ Old Road to Headington can turn right at the London Road without having to negotiate the big main junction

Remove shop merchandise from the pavement as it creates a pinch point for pedestrians esp. for wheelchair users and bugggies.

Road too small for the current volume of traffic (pre-coronavirus). Access only traffic to be permitted.

Do not bring buses into Broad Street as this will hugely reduce the quality of the space and prevent pedestrian use of the public space, and space for outdoor cafe seating, public seating.

Change this very dangerous roundabout to lights. Include segregated cycle lanes.

Close Bartlemas Rd, Southfield Rd and Divinity Rd to prevent rat running, congestion, pollution, improve safety, reduce noise, and enable social distancing.

For cyclists trying to turn right onto the cyclepath along the bypass, they have to cross 2 lanes of traffic which is dangerous at busy times. The signage could be improved here too

Access only closure of this road, which is a rat run between Cowley and Hill top Roads.

It could also be beneficial for the road to be access only to prevent a rat run between Southfield and Divinity Roads

It has been used as a throughway, so would be best for a cycleway alternative to the Cowley Road

High volume of traffic

Too much through traffic

Buses frequently block on-road cycleway meaning cyclists must divert to opposite carriageway or pavement, or be stuck in traffic, all dangerous. Pavement is wide enough for dedicated cycleway

Repeated interruption of cycle lane by bus stops creates conflict between bus users and cyclists - let alone the state of the cycleway which is poor.

Remove parking next to covered market and put in cycle way. Current arrangements force cyclists into path of buses taking middle of road to pass parked vehicles, with frequent gridlock

Pavement is narrow and cambered and results in frequent face-offs between pedestrians cyclists and service vehicles

The change from cycle lane onto road here is dangerous. Cars coming at speed do not look for cyclists coming off cycle path and it'snnot safe for pedestrians to carry on cycling on the pavememt across brookside as the pavement is too narrow ... [more]

Please don't make the area a one way system or this will allow cars to drive faster, with fewer obstructions. Two way traffic does at least create some natural traffic calming and creating a one way system will give greater priority to the ... [more]

Cars parked on the footpath make it difficult to get past with a buggy and send the message that the car takes priority over pedestrians

Before social distancing, it was difficult enough to get past with a buggy, having to contend with parked cars, bins, overgrown hedges etc. Now, I am constantly crossing the road to avoid people when they do not move over and weaving around ... [more]

Too often I see cyclists subjected to road rage by drivers who do not want to wait for them to cycle up the hill and try and force them to move over. Our road is not cycle friendly and it is such a good connecting street that it should be p ... [more]

Something needs to be done to slow the speed of cars on Morrell Avenue. More speed responsive signage and police checks.

The road is used as a cut through and many of the cars speed which makes it dangerous for getting my toddler in and out of the car - often the cars do not wait for me to do this and squeeze past me which is terrifying. The number and domina ... [more]

There is an overwhelming amount of traffic on a small residential street. Often traffic becomes backed up well past one even two turns. I regularly see parked cars with broken mirrors, side damage, and other incidents. Thank you
