A423 Southern Ring Road Slips & Kennington Road (Kennington) Proposed Speed Limits

Following an earlier consultation undertaken in April (details found below here: https://consultations.oxfordshire.gov.uk/consult.ti/SunningwellKenningtonSpeeds/consultationHome )

Oxfordshire County Council now proposes to make the following speed limit changes in response to comments received as part of the earlier consultation, and as a final part to the road improvements at Hinksey Hill and Kennington roundabouts:

  • Kennington Road - the northern, end currently unrestricted will be reduced to 40mph from the existing village 30 limit to Old Abingdon Road,
  • The northern slip road from Hinksey hill on and off the A423 for Kennington (currently unrestricted) will be reduced to 40mph meeting up with existing 30pmh limits,
  • The southern slip road from off the A423 to/from Kennington (currently unrestricted) will be reduced to 50mph meeting up with existing 30pmh limit.

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 11 August 2017. 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 2017. The papers for the meeting will be available on the County Council’s website about a week before the meeting.

This consultation has now closed.
