The area is a hidden gem right on Abingdon’s doorstep and has provided much-needed green space during lockdown. It was great to hear about the proposed Radley Lakes Masterplan to make sure the area is a haven for conservation and recreation.

“Thrupp Lane residents are rightly worried for the safety of the growing number of pedestrians and cyclists who use the road to access Radley Lakes. I saw for myself the risks posed to walkers and cyclists by commercial HGVs and lorries on what should have been a quiet Friday afternoon. A long-term sustainable solution is needed to make access safer for people visiting Radley Lakes. In the meantime, it’s important that Thrupp Lane is made safer for all users.”
