Mansfield College, Oxford - overflow parking provided on the road.

This path has poor width and visibility. It is not suitable for shared use and the benefits of converting it are questionable. Making Royston Road more cycle friendly, and developing HCC Links 7 and 8 would be a better use of resources.

A bit more cycle parking for visitors would be welcome at Oxford Brookes University.
