THE kerb at the corner of High Street and Hardwick Road in Whitchurch has been raised.
Oxfordshire County Council carried out the work following complaints about drivers parking on the pavement.
Kevin Bulmer, county councillor for Goring, paid for it from his locality budget.
Peter Worsley, of Hardwick Road, said: “It is reassuring that, in these times of austerity, the interest of pedestrians has gained some recognition.”
Cllr Bulmer has also provided funding for white lines to mark out a new passing place in High Street.
