Problem
track
118173Photo #118173Eastwards from this point there is no space for a bus lane, or for a wide enough cycle path, as the road is far narrower from here to the station than it is between the A34 and Waitrose. Lots of cyclists use this though, and due to the narrowness of the bike path and its poor quality they are forced either onto the pavement or j to the middle of the road. This would be so led by closingg the road to all but residents' access and putting in a complete bus gate before the bridge under the railway station. That way there would be enough space for cyclists on the road, and pedestrians could more easily make space for each other on the (sometimes very narrow) pavements.Temporary closure:
Problem
closure
118163Photo #118163The cycle path is on the pavement here, and there is also a bus stop, with no additional space. The changes proposed in the Botley Road improvement scheme won't go far enough to provide for social distancing as well as adequate space for cyclists. The idea suggest above for further up the road would be the only adequate solution - close the road to private cars to allow the cyclists and buses into the road and let the pedestrians use the pavement.Cycleway:

118137Photo #118137Too narrow for social distancing over bridge. As there is currently reduced levels of motor traffic, I recommend making the road a single lane with alternating priority lights. This would provide the space to create wider pavements and cycle lanes.Track:

117759Photo #117759Very dangerous cycle lanes that run alongside parked cars for pretty much the whole length of Warnford Rd. Remove the car parking, give the reclaimed space over to cycling.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
117758Photo #117758Both pavements are actually half given over to cycle lanes here. It's well meaning, since the road isn't great to cycle on. But the result is that pedestrians don't have much space to socially distance, and cyclists have a pretty poor off-road bike path. The only solution I can really see is to close the road to non-public transport. Put cyclists on the road and give the pavement cycle paths back to pedestrians.Temporary closure:
Problem

117757Photo #117757Although this pavement is not especially thin, the level of foot traffic here can be very large. Even before COVID-19, pedestrians were frequently stepping out into the road to get past one another.Track:
Problem
track
117722Photo #117722There is no space for cyclist to pass the bus stop. Even without social distancing this stop and pavement is impossible, dangerous and uncomfortable for bus users, pedestrians and cyclists alike. without the large sclae redesign that is needed eventually, the only option now is to make very clear that cyclists from Kidlington, Oxford Parkway and P&R go on the bus lane.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
117714Photo #117714This roundabout is very difficult to navigate for cyclist coming from and to Parkway Station and the P&R. No through was given to walking and cycling when redesigning this. This is the most direct route to Oxford from the railway and P&R. Making much clearer that cyclist can use the bus lane is critical. I have been told of by taxi drivers for using the bus lane. The approach to the roundabout is also dangerous for cyclist. Again, drivers sometimes challange cyclist on the road because they think they should use the pavement. From the P&R to summertwon it should be crystal clear for buses and taxis that cyclist are welcome and legal on the bus lane.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
117704Photo #117704The problem here is that cyclist and pedestrians are asked to share the pavement. The cycle lane should be on the outside of the pavement (ie adjacent to the road) and the walking lane should be on the inside (ie close to buildings) and this lay-out should be consistent along this part of Banbury Rd. currently the lanes switch from left to right. Eventually the whole road needs to be redesigned of course.Track:
