Aims to make cycling and walking safer on an Oxford road have prompted a call for public feedback.

Oxfordshire County Council is welcoming views on plans to extend the cycle path between Hollow Way and John Smith Drive on Garsington Road's southern side.

The proposals include a new 200-metre stretch of cycleway, connecting the existing sections, as well as safer pedestrian crossings.

Councillor Andrew Gant, Oxfordshire County Council’s cabinet member for transport management, said: "I encourage people to look at the proposals and help us understand the impact they’ll have.

"We believe change to travel and transport has a role to play in improving individual health and wellbeing.

"That’s why we’re working to make it easier, safer and more enjoyable to walk, wheel and cycle in Oxford and across the county, especially on some of our busiest routes."

The proposals also include replacing a crossing on the western side of Garsington Road with a wider, lighted crossing to offer more space for pedestrians, cyclists, those with prams, and those using mobility aids.

Additionally, a new crossing is suggested at the northern and southern arms of Garsington Road.

The public can submit their opinions through an online survey on the county council’s digital consultation platform, Let’s talk Oxfordshire, until 11.59pm on March 27.

Pending cabinet approval, the improvements would be implemented in the summer ahead of the planned traffic filters trial.
