Letter from Oxfordshire County Council:

Following an earlier consultation carried out in November/December 2018 regarding the proposals to introduce a new Puffin crossing on the A361 Banbury Road, and extend the 30mph speed limit at the northern end of Wardington, Oxfordshire County Council is now consulting on an additional proposal to help further mitigate the increase in traffic linked to the HS2 construction works. Specifically the proposal seeks to extend the 30mph speed limit at the south end of the village by 73 metres, reducing the length of the existing 50mph speed limit by the same amount. In light of this, please find the following consultation documents attached:

  • Public Notice,
  • Statement of Reasons,
  • Consultation Plan,
  • Draft Traffic Regulation Order.

The proposed Traffic Regulation Orders have been requested to be advertised in the Banbury Guardian today; Thursday 30th April 2020, and details are also available to view on the Councils consultation pages at the address below:


As stated on the notice, any objections or other representations on the proposal should be submitted by Friday 22nd May 2020.

Kind Regards,

Christian Mauz
Technical Officer (Traffic & Road Safety)
