123317Photo #123317This junction is very confusing for pedestrians and cyclists. Pedestrians don't have a clear access to traffic control lights. I think they should keep at lease one direction of the cycle path on the road up to Meadow Lane.Cycleway:

123313Photo #123313Even though there is a cycle lane here, quite often in the mornings there are delivery vans parked blocking it so as a cyclist you have to struggle to get around which is quite dangerous, I have actually seen a cyclist hit by a car on this stretch due to this problemCycleway:

It needs to be continuous and segregated on both sides as it is on the the other side.

123266Photo #123266This part of the road under the bridge to littlemore is one of the worst rat runs in oxford.

It needs closing and a modal filter put in to reduce traffic on Newman road. A lot of cars driving ery fast, breaking speed limits and turning a residential area into a through road.

They should be exiting and entering Littlemore via the ring road not a rat run.

I have had and seen a lot of near misses with people on bikes because it's a long straight bit of road, drivers speed and are not attentive.
Temporary closure:
Problem

123253Photo #123253Current painted cylce way is dangerous.
Ignored by cars as the lines split the road into two lanes too small fro cars so they illegally straddle the cycle lane.

Needs a physical barrier and for road traffic to be single lane.

Also potentially close off non-bus through traffic on Church Cowley Road with a bus gate at one end. Make it access only so you cannot cut through to Cowley Road and would have to go out to the ring road to do that.

123236Photo #123236St Clements is unacceptable as a major through road. It should be closed for non-bus motorised traffic so pavements can be extended and cycle lanes added that aren't interupted by bus stops. Traffic should be sent out to the ring road if it wants to cross town.Temporary closure:

123145Photo #123145Another section of the ring road cyclepath that is effectively missing. Lots of parked cars (should be removed) and having to negotiate head on with car traffic coming the other way. There is no space to pull in for anyone.Temporary closure:

122972Photo #122972Cars are starting to obstruct the footpath - we need all of the footpath clear to safely distance. Pavement parking needs to be strictly forbidden here - probably only room to safely have cars parked on one side of the road.Track:
Problem
track
122966Photo #122966The pavement is regularly instructed by vehicles, making it hard for people walking to safely distance. Please stop vehicles coming into the pavement - bollards would sort it out! The space on the road presently reserved for car parking should also be reallocated to be a cycle lane.Track:
