At a meeting of stakeholders this morning at Cheney School, many people expressed frustration that developer money still had not been spent to improve cycling routes in this area.
There was widespread support for a 20 mph speed limit on Old Road, possibly enforced by a time over distance speed camera.
Another suggestion was made to remove the central white line from the middle of the road which reduces the sense of certainty that encourages drivers to speed.
Everyone wanted to support Cheney School’s cycling to school policy.
The suggestion to put in speed cushions or raised tables was not so popular.
Another suggestion was to enable cyclists to bypass the queue at Windmill Road junction by using a cycle track painted on the footway which would drop away to the advanced stop line marked on the road.
County officers were asked to look into ways of obtaining extra funding for improvements along this busy stretch of road which serves the Churchill Hospital, Cheney School, the University of Oxford, and Oxford Brookes University.
