A41 Oxford Road & Wendlebury Road (Chesterton nr Bicester) Proposed 40mph Speed Limit & Toucan Crossing

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to make changes on the A41Oxford Road and the Wendlebury Road in Chesterton, near to Bicester. The proposals are being put forward as a result of the development of land adjacent to the Wendlebury Road south of Bicester. Specifically, the changes comprise of the following:

  • Wendlebury Road:
    • to introduce a 40mph speed limit  in place of the existing 60mph National Speed Limit, from its junction with the A41 dual carriageway (Garden Centre approach) southwards to  its junction with the link road to the A41/B4030 Vendee Drive roundabout, and along the full length of that link road. 

  • A41 Oxford Road:
    • to construct a Toucan Crossing (a signalised crossing for use by pedestrians & pedal cyclists) approx. 75* metres north-east of the A41/Vendee Drive RBT junction, and
    • install a Bus Stop Clearway (with a ‘No Stopping except local buses’ restriction) in the existing layby, approx. 60 metres* north-east of the A41/Vendee Drive RBT junction.

* 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.12.6.129) to the address below by 21 February 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.
