Street surgery on Saturday to debate proposed shared cycle track in London Road

Location: Junction of Ramsay Rd and London Rd

Date: Sat 30 November


We shall bring along copies of the planned changes.

County Cllr Roz Smith will hold a street surgery along with City Cllr Ruth Wilkinson at the junction of London Road and Ramsay Road at 10.30 on Sat 30 November to discuss proposals with residents.  Oxfordshire County Council is proposing to install a shared use cycle track on the south side of the London Road, to improve the safety for cyclists travelling towards Headington. This work is being done in conjunction with the London Road improvement schemes.

The works will include:

  • converting the existing footway to a cycle track
  • new tactile paving
  • a raised entry treatment across the junction of London Road with Ramsey Road
  • new road signs
  • new road markings.

This will be mostly a segregated shared use cycle facility with some areas un-segregated shared use e.g. around bus stops.

This will be similar to what is existing on the opposite side of London Road at the moment.

The raised entry treatment will be in the form of a flat-top road hump at London Road’s junction with Ramsay Road-this will be approximately 3 metres wide, 75mm high and constructed kerb to kerb.
