Labour County Councillor Mark Cherry announced this week that funding is available for a new pedestrian crossing on the Warwick Road, midway between North Oxford Academy/The Barley Mow and the mini roundabout at Cromwell Road.
Mark Cherry said, “The Warwick Road, between these two points, has become very busy and up until now there has been no safe way to cross. Many Drayton Academy school children use Warwick Road and also the cut-through from Sinclair Avenue, and residents I have spoken to have voiced their concerns about increased traffic and safety issues.
Our bid to the Government’s National Productivity Investment Fund has been successful, and subject to local consultation, it will be given the go-ahead in November 2017, and must be completed by March 2018.
Residents in the area are welcome to make their views known to the Council during the consultation period, which runs until 13 October 2017.”
