Oxfordshire County Council wants to make our built environments safer and more attractive places to walk and cycle. To enable this, 20mph speed restrictions are being used to help promote alternative modes of transport for local travel. Further details on how the council is considering making 20mph the new 30mph for Oxfordshire communities can be found here.
We’re therefore asking for your views on the proposal to introduce a 20mph speed limit throughout Faringdon, replacing the majority of the existing residential 30mph speed limit in the process. Additionally, the existing 50mph speed limit on the A4095 Radcot Road will be extended slightly, so that the proposed 20mph speed starts closer to the residential area, with Officers having taken the current road environment & traffic usage into account. Existing 30mph speed limits will also remain as ‘buffer limits’ on Coxwell Road, A417 Lechlade Road, and A417 Park Road.
The proposals are being put forward following road safety concerns raised by the parish, and form part of a countywide programme of works that seeks to deliver ‘a safer place with a safer pace’ for the residents of Oxfordshire. In light of this, please find the following consultation documents attached:
- Public Notice,
- Statement of Reasons,
- Consultation Plan(s), and
- Draft Traffic Regulation Order.
The proposed Traffic Regulation Order was advertised in the Oxford Times newspaper on Thursday 05th January 2023, and details are also available to view on the Councils consultation portal at the address below:
As stated on the notice, any objections or other representations on the proposal should be submitted by Friday 03rd February 2023.
