A361 Bloxham Road & Bloxham Grove Road (Banbury/Bloxham) Proposed 30mph Speed Limits & Motor Vehicle Prohibition

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to make amendments to the existing speed limits on the A361 Bloxham Grove Road (at Wykham Park Farm) in response to the planned extensive re-development, and also on Bloxham Grove Road due to the development of adjacent land for education purposes. Specifically, the changes comprise of the following proposals:

Wykham Park Farm site:

  • A361 Bloxham Road - extend the existing 30mph speed limit south of Banbury to cover the planned new roundabout junction at Wykham Park Farm (reducing the current 40mph speed limit by the same amount), and
  • A361 Bloxham Roadprohibit motor vehicles on a section which will become unused following the planned carriageway re-alignment. Access will be restricted by fixed bollard across the carriageway, accompanied by the appropriate traffic signs. Pedestrians & pedal cycles will be exempt and can continue to use the stretch of road.

Bloxham Grove Road site:

  • Bloxham Grove Road - to extend the existing 30mph speed limit eastwards, replacing the same length of 60mph National Speed Limit, and
  • A361 Banbury Road (north of Bloxham Grove Road) extend the existing 30mph speed limit northwards, replacing the same length of 50mph Speed Limit.

* Additionally some administrative changes to the speed limit orders are proposed to ensure the signed limits are accurately described in the relevant orders.

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.12.6.189) to the address below by 24 July 2020. 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.

Any unresolved objections will be reported to the Council’s Cabinet meeting later in 2020. The papers for the meeting will be available on the County Council’s website about a week before the meeting.
