I ask the government to adopt safe re-routing of Langford Lane, Bicester – not the proposed dangerous one

Closure of a level crossing in Langford Lane, Bicester, requires re-routing of Langford Lane.
I ask the government to choose the Orange Route proposed by residents, not the dangerous Red Route now planned.
The Red Route has a hairpin bend 11 metres from a riding school where children ride and where visitors congregate.
Pedestrians and horses would mingle with heavy farming and military transport on the hairpin bend.
Thames Valley Police Traffic Management have pointed to the dangers, including vehicles possibly going out of control at the hairpin bend. They confirmed the safety of the Orange Route.
The Red Route would be a continuing danger to all users, accidents waiting to happen.
Local residents have vigorously urged the well researched Orange Route.
More information, with maps of the two routes, is available at
