Osney Mead & Ferry Hinksey Road (Oxford) Proposed Shared-Use Cycle Track, Tiger Crossing & Parking Amendments

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to create improved facilities for pedal cyclists in the form of a wider pavement to create a new shared use pedestrian/cyce track along Ferry Hinksey Road & Osney Mead in Oxford. Specifically, the changes comprise of the following proposals:

Shared-Use Cycle Track (for pedestrians/cycles):

  • Ferry Hinksey Road – on the west side: from Osney Mead northwards for approximately 200 metres, and
  • Osney Mead – on the north side: from Ferry Hinksey Road south-eastwards for approximately 570 metres.

Tiger Crossing (a non-signalled crossing, which includes a zebra crossing for pedestrians with a separate crossing area for pedal cyclists):

  • Ferry Hinksey Road – at its junction with Willow Walk, just north of Osney Mead.

Parking Amendments - to facilitate the above, amendments will be made to the existing 2-hour Parking Bays (8am – 6.30pm Monday to Friday permit holders exempt) as follows:

  • Osney Mead (northern part) - on the north side: the 24-metre bay will be removed entirely,
  • Osney Mead (northern part) - on the south side: a) the bay 30 metres east of Ferry Hinksey Road will be increased by 14 metres, and b) the bay situated 20 metres east of Osney Mead (west) will be reduced by 15 metres.

Objections to the proposals and other representations, specifying the grounds on which they are made, may be sent in by completing the online questionnaire, via email or in writing (quoting ref: CM.12.6.320) to the address below by 05 February 2021. The Council will consider objections and representations received in response and they may be disseminated widely for these purposes and made available to the public.

Any unresolved objections will be reported to the Council’s Cabinet meeting later in 2021 (the Forward Plan of decisions meetings can be viewed here). The papers for the meeting will be available on the County Council’s website about a week before the meeting.
