Confused cycle/pedestrian right of way

Reported via desktop in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category by Trish Elphinstone at 15:30, Monday 12 April 2021 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2667307.

The cycle signs on Windmill Road are misleading. Cycles and scooters riding the pavement where they should not. Clearly unsafe for pedestrians and obstructive for traffic

Residents report that they endured disruption when the cycle lanes were installed yet these signs suggest cycling on the pavement is okay. Please be assured cyclists are only too keen to be on the pavement and not the road! What do these signs mean and why is it not made clear where there are cycle lanes bikes and now the electric scooters should be on the road and not running down pedestrians? Especially with children going to the school nearby.

Residents opposite the NOC have enormous problems getting into and out of their driveways. All these houses predate the new entry exit that was put in when the hospital was redeveloped. Buses cannot negotiate the hospital exit without crossing to the other side of the road

What can be done to improve the road safety situation and help the residents whose interests have been ignored?

  • The drain leading from my property to the mains on windmill road is clear. But there may be a blockage where our drain meets the main line.
