125140Photo #125140Cycle lane here is on one side of the road only and indicated as one way. Could lane be added to other side of London Road, or widened on Bury Knowle side to make it a 2 way path?Cycleway:

125069Photo #125069Corner of Drove Acre Road and Cricket Road is very dangerous. Cars drive very quickly, do not slow down for the corner, and take the inside corner from both directions resulting in a dangerous situation and many near misses. Should be closed or speed bumps added to slow down traffic.Temporary closure:

125065Photo #125065Southfied Road and Divinity Road should both become one-way streets (each one in a different direction). In addition a cycleway should be added as I have had many near misses with cars here as they have not slowed down or noticed cyclists.Cycleway:

124925Photo #124925Cricket Road and Rymers Lane are used as a rat run to avoid traffic on Cowley Road. A filter here allowing only bikes through would stop this and make it far safer for children walking on these streets to school to social distance.Temporary closure:

124840Photo #124840Longwall St is simply too narrow to carry two-way motor traffic as well as high volume cycling and pedestrian movements. Clos it entirely to private vehicles and make it one-way for buses; widen footpaths and put in proper cycle tracks.Temporary closure:

124836Photo #124836Roosevelt Drive is horrible for cycling - dangerous on the road, dangerous entry/exit to Old Rd Campus, etc. Pedestrian access to the Churchill (or Julia Durbin nursery) is also horrible.

Needs to be made one-way, perhaps, to free up room for separate cycle tracks.

124831Photo #124831Hythe Bridge St should be a walk-cycle boulevarde connecting the railway station (and western city) to the city centre. All except local access motor traffic can be shifted to Park End St. Couple with a bus gate on Worcester St North if that gets too congested.Temporary closure:
Problem

124829Photo #124829Magdalen Bridge and High St are _the_ main obstacle to most people from East Oxford cycling into the centre (or through it to other destinations). There have to be separate cycle tracks given how much motor traffic there is and how badly the buses block lines of sight.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
124828Photo #124828The pavements are hopelessly narrow at the best of times - shop signboards, bus queues, and high pedestrian traffic (both to and through George St). Also the most direct route to the west for most people cycling. Arguably needs to be made one-way, to free up enough space for wide pavements and a contra-flow cycle track.Track:

124659Photo #124659Cyclists coming from the East along Weirs Lane and turning into Fox Crescent come from a place that cars coming out of Fox Crescent wouldn't necessarily expect to see a bike, making this quite a dangerous junction. Take the segregated cycle lane round the corner into Fox Crescent.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
124653Photo #124653Comedy barriers have been installed in the cycle half of the path here by the stairs. I assume this is to stop cyclists from bumping into people coming out of the stairwell, but it just means that all cyclists use the pedestrian half of the bridge, where there is no barrier. Solution: swap the cyclists to the side away from the stairwell and remove the barriers.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
124639Photo #124639At schlool pickup and dropoff time, drivers treat this as though it's a one way street, making it impossible to safely cycle up to the cycle from Cricket Road to the cycle route through to Iffley Road. This is a particularly important cycle route for children going to school at Larkrise, at St Gregory the Great, and at Oxford Spires. Parking should be removed from this part of Shelley Road, and a segregated cycle lane installed.Cycleway:

124627Photo #124627Cars parking half on the pavement on Swinburne Road often make it impossible to walk this way with a pushchair, let alone to maintain social distancing. Please stop cars parking on this pavement.Track:
Problem
track
124624Photo #124624Cars park tight up to the corner of the junction between Chatham Road and Fox Crescent, and often partially in the cycle way through this junction. This forces cyclists to pass each other close together, and, probably more dangerously, obscures the view down Chatham Road when coming round the corner.Cycleway:
Problem

124620Photo #124620This toucan crossing is set up with a very long wait for cyclists and pedestrians, forcing groups of people to hang around together for several minutes. During lockdown, there have regularly been many pedestrians and cyclists waiting here together despite very few cars coming down Abingdon Road.Cycleway:
Problem

124617Photo #124617Cars come off the roundabout very fast here to enter the supermarket. Cyclists and pedestrians heading for the A4074 have no choice but to try to rush across in the gaps. Introduce a controlled crossing here.Cycleway:

124081Photo #124081Iffley Turn needs 'no waiting at any time' restrictions to prevent on-street parking by non-local drivers. All houses here have driveways for off-road parking. The space could be better used for cycle lanes as this is a well-used cycle route to Iffley Village and the Thames Path.Cycleway:
Problem

124070Photo #124070Traffic rat-runs through Iffley Turn to avoid northbound commuter traffic queues on the A4158. A prohibition of motor vehicles Experimental Order at Iffley Rd junction with A4158 would prevent this issue. Access for residents cars and delivery vehicles would be via the junction with Iffley Turn & A4158 further north (near the Peugeot Garage). This would make Iffley Turn safer for pedestrians and cyclists.Temporary closure:
Problem

124064Photo #124064This road into Binsey village has a lot of traffic from pedestrians and cyclists, but no pavement or cycle lane which makes it dangerous. It can easily be widened as it's just open grassland on either side.Track:
Problem
track
123956Photo #123956Allow bikes to cycle down this footpath, it is wide enough easily. There are many other paths of similar width shared by cyclists and pedestrians, and it would mean cyclists could go all the way from St Clements to Headington without going on the main road.Cycleway:

123774Photo #123774The space under the bridge is too narrow. Reducing the traffic to one lane will cause major tailbacks without reduction in traffic volume. Without this reduction in traffic the lower footpath could be converted to a wider cycle path and the high level footpath used for pedestrians in both directions.Cycleway:

The 'one-way' section of this road is for the benefit of buses should be made two-way for cycling. Numbers of cyclists are 'made to' turn in, and out illegally. This is a level alternative to the climb over the Pipework Bridge. This is not acceptable for enabling cycling.Cycleway:

123548Photo #123548This bridge is a great link between Littlemore and Rose Hill. However, there is an unhelpful barrier, steps rather than a slope, and cars parked by the dropped curb. This needs to be improved to allow people on bikes and on foot to share this effectively.Cycleway:

123540Photo #123540The road under the bridge is really narrow and the cycle lane disappears.

123505Photo #123505What about asking the cafe and shop owners of Walton Street if they actually want tables on the pavements. The Jericho Traders Association has formally opposed the idea. Many businesses in Jericho are unaware of the proposals. Of those that do know about it twenty (so far) are opposed. There's very little room for any tables at all if social distancing is followed (even if it's reduced to 1m). Jericho businesses DO NOT WANT PEDESTRIANISATION OF WALTON STREET. You don't live here, you don't have a business here. It's nothing to do with you whatsoever. Many of us have been in Jericho for several decades and we resent having your ideas imposed upon us. Why is there no 'disagree' button?Temporary closure:

123456Photo #123456Dangerous junction. Volume of traffic turning into and out of Divinity Road, with some traffic trying to cross to Leopold Street and vice versa, makes this dangerous and unpleasant for cyclists and pedestrians.
