Safety barriers failed

Reported via mobile anonymously at 18:25, Tue 31 October 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and West Oxfordshire District Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5159168.

REPEAT OF PREVIOUS REPORT - AS REQUESTED: "The safety barriers on the east side of the signal-controlled crossing on Witan Way BOTH need replacing urgently (* the broken remains have been removed: the resulting "open-ness" has made the danger WORSE - as regularly seen !). For example this morning 2 cyclists with a child too, tried to beat the changing lights by speeding straight out in to the road: one nearly ran in to the side of a car moving off perfectly correctly, half-fell off but started screaming abuse at the entirely blameless driver. With new inter-lock barriers rebuilt there (and as USED to be there), then such foolish cyclists will have more protection from their own dangerous stupidity.

Council ref: ENQ23979011
