Oxfordshire County Council proposes to make changes on the A361 Banbury Road in Wardington, the changes are for road safety reasons and to specifically help mitigate the expected increase in traffic (specifically HGVs) linked to the HS2 construction works:
- A361 Banbury Road:
- to extend the 30mph speed limit northwest of the Hare & Hounds PH by 68 metres, in place of the current 50mph, and
- to install a Puffin crossing (signal controlled for use by pedestrians) approximately 75m* south of the southern junction of the unnamed road leading to Edgcote.
* dimensions are approximate, taken from the centre of the junction to the centre of the feature.
Objections to the proposals and other representations, specifying the grounds on which they are made, may be sent in by completing the online questionnaire, via email or in writing (quoting ref: CM.12.6.393) to the address below by 21 December 2018. The Council will consider objections and representations received in response and they may be disseminated widely for these purposes and made available to the public.
I personally fear the planned extension is by far way less then what is needed. I would also like to see a form of crossing leading to williamscot there is a bus stop on one side and lots of walkers ect passing foot traffic along here that find it near on impossible to cross here yet need too in winter the road is slippy the traffic passes at a dire speed (broken sign post leading to upper wardington is a prime example) this would aslo help in reducing the speed!
