123594Photo #123594The barrier to Brook St, against the Riverside Route, means that only illegal use for the footway allows passage.
The barrier should be made shorter, to enable people cycling from the riverside to pass through direct onto the Brook Str carriageway.

123573Photo #123573Butterwycke Place can be/is a convenient and better route from NCR5 and St Ebbes St, to travel from the centre, south to Abingdon Road. 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:
Problem

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:
Problem

123544Photo #123544Cars regularly park illegally here, obstructing both cycling and walking. There need to be proper, continuous cycle lanes, with double yellow lines or similar the length of this road.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
123540Photo #123540The road under the bridge is really narrow and the cycle lane disappears. There is often black ice due to drains under the bridge in the cycle lane making it really dangerous for cyclists. Suggest the road is traffic lighted for single lane for motorised vehicles allowing cycle lane to be continuous and significantly wider.Cycleway:
Problem

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. Stopping through traffic on Divinity Road and Leopold Street would reduce the amount of turning motor vehicle traffic, which might also allow junction improvements to further increase safety.Temporary closure:
Problem
closure
123449Photo #123449Dangerous section of road and junctions, with a blind bend and awkward road camber and a high volume of traffic at busy times joining Divinity Road and at the junction with Hill Top Road. There is a short cycle path over the pavement build out at the Divinity Road junction with Morrell Avenue that means cycles and cars turning into Divinity Road merge dangerously, with cars often trying to pass cycles before the single file section of the road after Hill Top Road junction. Remove motor vehicle through traffic.Temporary closure:

Problem
cycleways
123351Photo #123351Hazardous road for cyclists and pedestrians. Cars parked on the pavement obstruct pedestrian walkways and create narrow conditions in which cars often dangerously overtake cyclists. Speeding cars are a danger on Divinity road. Suggested improvements include creating a separated bicycle lane by removing dangerous parking spaces, or restricting traffic to residential access only for cars on Divinity road.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
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:
Problem
cycleways
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:
Problem

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
closure
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:
