Bus Stop safety issue - Hawkes Lane, Sibford Gower

Sent to Cherwell District Council and Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later. Council ref: 1543707.

There is a bus stop at the junction of Acre Ditch and Hawk’s Lane in Burdrop in the Sibford Gower Parish, which serves the Johnsons 3A service between Stratford-on-Avon and Banbury.

The bus stop for the Stratford bound service is well defined, and situated on a pavement on the South side of the junction. This bus stop appears to be fit for purpose as passengers are able to wait in reasonable safety on the pavement.

In contrast, the bus stop for the Banbury bound service is not defined, and effectively requires passengers to wait on the highway on the North side of this blind junction. Whilst it possible for able bodied passengers to wait at the Stratford bound stop until a bus approaches, this is not feasible for passengers with limited mobility, as is the case for the Parishioner who raised the issue.

Given the above circumstances, this bus stop does not appear to be fit for purpose, and I would be grateful if you could investigate the situation, with a view to proposing options for eliminating, and in the meantime, mitigating the issues raised.
