thisisoxfordshire: Roy Darke Roy Darke

RESIDENTS will be given the chance to discuss Oxford City Council ’s cycling plans at the next north east area forum.

The forum meets on Monday, September 24, from 6pm at Marston Primary School in Copse Lane, Northway.

Up for discussion will be the city council’s cycle city plan which will see up to £840,000 spent on making Oxford’s cycling facilities better.

City councillor Roy Darke who will chair the meeting, said: “The north east is one of the largest areas in the city, with a challenging transport network.

“We have previously discussed some transport issues at the area forum and we are keen to involve residents again in cycling improvements and needs in the area.”

Residents are invited to make suggestions for improving cycle lanes and junction markings, removing of obstructions and improving signs.

A total of 37 projects across the city have been highlighted to improve conditions for cyclists and reduce car use.

I suggest banning pedestrians from the pavements to give cyclists a clear run. Also remove the red light from traffic lights so they don't have anything to ignore.

Xjohnx what a surprise, you can't seem to wait to jump on the anti- cycling band wagon. I take it you don't cycle?

Seems 'Cubist' maybe from the same parallel universe in which the likes of Picasso, Braque and Metzinger inhabited - though at least Picasso owned and drove a Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing sports car!

It seems to me, the vast majority of light-jumpers and pavement-riders are chavs, like chavster himself.

They've got nothing to do with regular law-abiding commuters who'd just like some better facilities.

How about making one of the many unused shops in Oxford a staffed "hub" for people to lock their bikes in, in return for a nominal fee - it won't get wet, stolen or damaged. It might help reduce the number of abandoned bikes, as you could take your bike there and donate it. Get the homeless to fix them, they can earn a few quid, and everyone benefits.
