A40 Bus Lane and Bike Track Consultation


Our response to this consultation focuses on improving the design of proposed changes to the cycle route between Eynsham and Oxford using the latest design guidance.

The basic design parameters – a 3m wide two-way track with a 1.5m verge between the cycle track and the bus lane – are sound, but the decision to place the track on the northern side and the physical constraints of some of the junctions raise issues that need addressing.

Our main concern is that all of the crossings are made safe enough for children to cycle to school and put their Bikeability training into practice. A safe crossing at Eynsham roundabout is essential.

You can support our call for safe crossings for all by responding to the consultation and saying exactly that, or similar, in the comment box in part 3. You have until midnight tomorrow, Thursday 12th January.


Alternatively, you can send your comments to LTS.team@oxfordshire.gov.uk with a subject heading of Eynsham Park & Ride and A40 Bus Lane Consultation. Feel free to mention the Windrush Bike Project response.
