Footath safety

Reported via desktop in the Footways and Pavement damage category anonymously at 14:18, Thu 28 September 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5041313.

Would it be possible to place a staggered barrier/railing at the end of the alleyway between The Crofts & Corn St?

For the second time this year, I nearly collided with a cyclist emerging from the alley at speed, as I exited the dental surgery next door.

There is a barrier at the other end of the alley, so installing one at this end wouldn't necessarily stop them cutting through (or hinder chair users), but it would mean they would have to come to a virtual stop & be less likely to cause injury.

As this path is so narrow and there is a proper, on-road, alternative route a few yards away, there really is no need for them to cut through here at all.
