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.
