Oxfordshire County Council is seeking the views of residents on proposals – as part of the ongoing Science Vale Cycling Network improvement works – to create cycle ‘bypass’ lanes in the existing traffic calming build-outs located to the north and south of the school access on the High Street.
The proposals, shown on this plan, will allow cyclists to navigate the build-outs instead of waiting with the vehicular traffic, and will be complimented with short cycle lanes on the buildout approaches allowing cycle traffic to pass queuing traffic. The bypass lanes will be approximately 1.2 metres wide, and will incorporate a raised area approximately 3.75m in length, with associated ramps being 1.3m long. The dimensions of the existing build-outs (in terms of effects on the main carriageway i.e. their ‘footprint’) and associated humps will not be altered as part of these proposals.
Any comments on this proposal should be submitted to Christian Mauz at Christian.Mauz@Oxfordshire.gov.uk by 18th September 2019. Comments can also be sent by post to:
