Berry Hill Road, Milton Road & The Rise (Adderbury/Twyford) Proposed Speed Limits, Traffic Calming & Parking Restrictions

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to amend the speed limits on Milton Road & Berry Hill Road on the approach to Adderbury village which will also be accompanied by complementary traffic calming measures. Additionally it is also proposed to introduce sections of ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ (double yellow lines) parking prohibitions on the A4260 Banbury Road & The Rise. Both sets of proposals are being put forward in order to help facilitate the management of vehicles speeds entering the village, and the safe & unrestricted movement of traffic at the junction & to better manage inappropriate parking in the area to help improve road safety.

Specifically, the changes comprise of the following proposals:

Speed Limits (Adderbury):

  • Milton Road – extend the existing 30mph speed limit westwards for an additional 79 metres, and thereafter introduce a ‘buffer’ 40mph limit for a further 235 metres. Both limits to replace the existing 60mph national speed limit, and
  • Berry Hill Road – increase the existing 30mph limit to 40mph northwards for 175 metres from the junction with the A4260 Oxford Road.

Traffic Calming (Adderbury):

  • Milton Road – to construct a chicane feature at the proposed 30mph/40mph terminal point approx. 270 metres west of the junction with St Marys Road, comprising of two kerbed build outs with demountable bollards & 1 metre wide cycle bypass lanes, with priority given to traffic travelling westwards out of the village, and
  • Berry Hill Road – to construct a chicane feature at the proposed 30mph/40mph terminal point located approx. 175 metres northwest of the junction with the A4260, comprising of two kerbed build outs with demountable bollards & 1 metre wide cycle bypass lanes, with priority given to traffic travelling south-eastwards out of the village.

Parking Restrictions (Twyford):

  • On the A4260 Banbury Road (east side) – introduce new 'No Waiting at Any Time' parking restrictions (double yellow lines) extending approximately 15 either side of its junction with The Rise; and
  • also on The Rise (both sides) from its junction with the A4260 Banbury Road, eastwards for approximately 65 metres.
