Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

This consultation has now concluded.

We're asking for your views on the proposal to introduce a 20mph speed limit throughout Witney, incorporating the existing 20mph speed limits in the ‘Cogges’, ‘Northeast’ and ‘town centre’ areas. Additionally, accompanying the proposed 20mph limit, 30mph and 40mph speed limits will be introduced/adjusted on key routes – taking into account the road environment and traffic usage.

The 20mph speed limit will lead out to points on:

  • A4095 Woodstock Road,
  • New Yatt Road,
  • B4022 Hailey Road,
  • Witney/Crawley Road,
  • B4047 Burford Road,
  • A4095 Curbridge Road,
  • Stanton Harcourt Road, and
  • B4022 Oxford Hill.

30mph speed limits will be retained on the A415 Ducklington Lane and Station Road, then introduced in place of the existing 40mph speed limit on the B4047 Burford Road, Deer Park Road, and Thorney Leys.

Finally, new 40mph speed limits will be introduced (replacing the existing 50mph speed limits) on Jubilee Road, the A4095 Witney Road, and on the A4095 Woodstock Road.

Please read the detailed information provided on this consultation, and take the time to complete the survey as your views and opinions matter. Your response should be completed and returned by Friday 08 July 2022.

Whilst we will endeavour to answer simple queries during the course of the consultation, any more complex questions/issues will be appraised and dealt with as part of consultation process.

What happens next?

The county council will review the responses and if necessary (i.e. if objections are received) prepare a report to be presented to the Cabinet Member for Highway Management at a meeting scheduled for later in 2022. This will be public meeting at which members of the public may apply to speak. The agenda and reports for meetings will be made available on the Oxfordshire County Council web site about a week before the meeting (please note that occasionally it is necessary to defer reports to a later meeting, and it is therefore advisable to check the agenda ahead of attending a meeting).
