126856Photo #126856The way through from Churchill Drive to Massey Close is blocked to bikes.

A filter here only allowing bikes through would cut out all of this traffic while leaving easy access to all streets. It would also help to make Randolph Street, Hawkins Street, Green Street, and this end of Leopold Street one way to motor traffic.Temporary closure:

Problem
track
126119Photo #126119This street should be closed to through traffic. It is used as a rat run by taxis and other none residential vehicles. The pavements are very narrow and with the amount of cars parked on either side of the road, there is always a traffic jam. It is impossibel to maintain social distance on the pavement here, and cycling is a challenge given the congestion with cars using this as a short cut from the cowley road to Morrell Avenue.Temporary closure:

Problem
track
125995Photo #125995Dedicated cycle lanes needed. Despite huge amounts of space cyclists have to use the road or shared pavement and then merge into traffic at roundabouts which is dangerous. Separate cycle lanes and junctions would make this much clearer and saferCycleway:
Problem
cycleways
125985Photo #125985Narrow cycle lanes with fast traffic. Removing the north side cycle lane and widening south side cycle lane would give more space. Allowing cyclists to share north side raised pavement when going uphill would enable this. As its a steep hill cyclists sharing footway on north side would only be able to go slowly.Cycleway:
Problem

125982Photo #125982Cycle path forces you in front of traffic. Taking a couple of meters of the land to the south would mean the cycle lane could go straigh across withouth having to merge into trafficCycleway:
Problem

125977Photo #125977Reduce the width of the road entrace. It's extremely wide (4 times the raod width) and cars drive fast around it. Also moving the bollards already around the shop to the edge of the pavement would prevent all the cars parking on the pavementTrack:

125974Photo #125974Pinch point on zebra crossing forces cyclists in front of traffic. Replacing pinch poin with bollards would allow stop this. Also continuing the cycle lane all the way through headington would connect the routes and make it much less intimidating to cycleCycleway:
Problem
cycleways
125972Photo #125972Cycle lanes needed on both sides of the road to connect cycle route. Busy car traffic makes this intimidating to cycle through. Making the old paved front gardens in front of shops on the north side of the road into proper pavement could help create more space as could removing some parking.Cycleway:

125963Photo #125963Loading bay for cars to be removed to create a formal cycle way. At the moment cars use this a free parking rather than just for deliveries to the shops which means cyclists are pushed into the busy road which is unsafe for children cycling to and from school and in and out of central oxford. The loading bays can be converted to create extra either cycle storage space or cycle lane space that is segregatedCycleway:

125960Photo #125960The pavement is not widen enough here to maintain social distance as there are vehices often parked on the narrow pavement and the shops store things on the already narrow pavement.Track:
Problem
track
125956Photo #125956The pavement is very narrow here. It is a dead end and so cars have no need to drive here given that the houses /flats do not have parking facilities. This is a key route to East Oxford primary school and to ensure a safe route for the preschoolers and primary children to walk and cycle to school cars should be prevented from accessing this street and the pavement should be widened and incorporate a cycleway.Track:
Problem
track
125951Photo #125951This road should be closed to traffic other than shop deliveries (with a bollard preventing cars from accessing it at other times). Many cars illegally park at this junction both on the road and pavement blocking the road for cyclists. and pedestrians. Many are people shopping at Tescos who don't want to pay for the car park behind the store. Note this is a key route for children walking to East Oxford Primary school and the narrow pavements and large number of vehicles blocking this space present a danger to the young children.Temporary closure:

Problem
cycleways
125943Photo #125943In theory cars cannot enter Bullingdon road here but cars often go through the wrong way, also many non residential cars use Bullindgon Road as a cut through between the iffley road and cowley road which means residents in particular children walking to east oxford primary school face dangers as they need to walk in the road to maintain social distance, given that this street has high foot fall out of the residential neighbourhood onto the cowley road.Temporary closure:
Problem
closure
125939Photo #125939Non-residential traffic - both cars, taxis and vans use this spot to pavement park at the junction blocking the pavement. At the same time many vehicles use this narrow residential street as a cut through meaning pedestrians cannot social distance on pavements or the road.Temporary closure:

125164Photo #125164Godstow Road is used by rat-running commuters when the A34 is busy. Closing the road to motor vehicles would reduce problems with speeding vehicles on the blind sharp bends in Wolvercote, the narrow river bridges and the traffic lights on the railway bridge, and would likely increase footfall for the pubs on the riverwalk circuit. The exact location of the modal filter could be decided after consultation with residents and the pubs.Temporary closure:

125161Photo #125161The footbridge adjacent to the Godstow Railway Bridge is not wide enough for social distancing. There are no suitable pavements on the railway bridge, but there is sufficient space.

125154Photo #125154There is no pavement outside St. Peter's church and further along First Turn to the west. Informal parking spaces should be removed and a pavement installed. This area is particularly dangerous during school rush hour and providing a pavement here would help.Track:

125153Photo #125153A modal filter should be placed on First Turn to stop rat-running motor vehicles and as part of providing safe Schoolstreets to Wolvercote school.
