Residents will have noticed that the work has finished on new cycle by-pass lanes in the High Street opposite Red Barn and number 35.
The new features are designed to make it safer for cyclists and form part of the cycle route linking Didcot with the Culham Science Centre.
There has been a warm welcome to the lanes from many villagers, but there are concerns about people parking on the road, making it dangerous for cyclists who are forced out into traffic. The primary school has been asked to impress on parents not to park cars in the lanes and on the High Street during drop-off and pick-up times.
One cycling resident said that the new bypass lanes work very well. He said that it was much safer to be able to ride through the chicanes without having to play ‘chicken’ with oncoming traffic or worry about cars approaching from behind.
He said: “I was surprised that the cycle lanes next to the chicanes are humped, but this should stop them filling up with litter as they do on the Didcot Road. The bypasses are a welcome addition to the High Street and I hope that car owners will respect the lanes by not parking on them”.
