Oxfordshire County Council’s formal consultation on traffic calming in West Adderbury has begun, and responses need to be submitted by the end of 18 December 2020. See the OCC Adderbury Consultation Page for further details and associated documents.
This formal consultation follows an informal one carried out by Adderbury Parish Council, which ended in October.
The proposals for West Adderbury can be summarised as follows:
- Milton Road:
– extend the existing 30mph speed limit westwards for an additional 79 metres, and thereafter introduce a ‘buffer’ 40mph limit for a further 235 metres
– construct a chicane feature at the proposed 30mph/40mph terminal point approx. 270 metres west of the junction with St Marys Road, comprising of two kerbed build outs with demountable bollards & 1 metre wide cycle bypass lanes, with priority given to traffic travelling westwards out of the village
- Berry Hill Road:
– increase the existing 30mph limit to 40mph northwards for 175 metres from the junction with the A4260 Oxford Road.
– construct a chicane feature at the proposed 30mph/40mph terminal point located approx. 175 metres northwest of the junction with the A4260, comprising of two kerbed build outs with demountable bollards & 1 metre wide cycle bypass lanes, with priority given to traffic travelling south-eastwards out of the village.
The new proposed speed limits are shown below. Entering Berry Hill Road from the A4260, the speed limit will be increased from 30 to 40mph approximately as far as the current gates. Leaving West Adderbury on the Milton Road the current 30mph speed limit will be extended almost as far as Ball Colegrave and then a new 40mph stretch will be introduced before the 60mph limit resumes.
