A423 Southern Ring Road & Kennington Slip Roads (Kennington) Proposed Speed Limits

Following an earlier consultation carried out in July/August 2017 (for details click here) regarding the proposals to reduce the speed limits on the Oxford Ring Road, slip roads to & from Kennington, and also on the adjacent Kernnington Road, Oxfordshire County Council is again proposing to make the changes to the speed limits. This is due to the expiration of the statutory two-year period in which to implement proposals, specifically the proposals comprise of the following changes:

  1. The slip roads serving Kennington village to/from the A423 (currently unrestricted) will be reduced to 50mph on the south side slip road and 40mph on the north side;
  2. The A423 dual-carriageway (southern ring road) from the A34 / Hinksey Hill roundabout will be reduced to 50mph through to Heyford Hill roundabout;
  3. Kennington Road - the northern end currently unrestricted will be reduced to 40mph southwards from Old Abingdon Road.

Objections to the proposals and other representations, specifying the grounds on which they are made, may be sent in by completing the online questionnaire or by writing (quoting ref: CM/12.6.372/263/415) to the address below by 01 November 2019. 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 2019 or early in 2020. The papers for the meeting will be available on the County Council’s website about a week before the meeting.
