133151Photo #133151There 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 heaters would be wrong. Walton Street is a commercial thoroughfare and has been for 200 years - it is not an appropriate road for closure.Temporary closure:

130767Photo #130767Please 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 car and make it easier to drive faster through.

130752Photo #130752Too 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 prioritized as a cycle friendly street. If it was, I would use it but I am too scared at the moment.Cycleway:

130744Photo #130744The 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 dominance of cars is causing increasing air pollution and this doesn't feel like the residential street that it should be - which is a street open for all users - cyclists, pedestrians, human interactions. Car's should be at the bottom of the street user hierarchy.Temporary closure:

130542Photo #130542Pavement/road here have sunk/been damaged by vehicles and are often blocked by bikes in term, which means it's difficult to avoid walking in the centre of the road, which is a popular route for cyclists. Request colleges whose contractor vehicles have probably damaged the pavement do proper repairs and request students not to leave bikes on the pavement. In the longer term this should be completely repaved to be a shared route with priority for cycles/pedestrians over vehicles.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:

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

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:

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:

125972Photo #125972Cycle lanes needed on both sides of the road to connect cycle route. Busy car traffic makes this intimidating to cycle through.

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:

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:

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:
