B4020 Main Road (Alvescot) Proposed Traffic Calming Build-outs

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to construct the following traffic calming measures on the B4020 Main Road Lane in Alvescot. The proposals are being put forward on behalf of, and in conjunction with the parish Council in order to help improve road safety by helping to moderate and reduce the speed of traffic entering the village, specifically the proposals comprise of:

  • Kerbed build-outs (each to be approx. 4m* long by 1.5m* wide) at the: 
    • Northern end: to be located on the eastbound carriageway, approx. 220m southeast of the junction with the B4477, and
    • Southern end: to be located on the westbound carriageway approx. 200m south east of the junction with The Green.
  • The build outs will reduce the width of the carriageway to approx. 3.5 metres and will be accompanied by additional signs and lining improvements, and
  • Priority will be given to traffic exiting the village, i.e. travelling north-westwards at the northern end, and south-eastwards at the southern end.

* All 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.12.6.104) to the address below by 05 June 2020** (see below). 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.

** UPDATE - due to delays with residents receiving their letters, this consultation has been extended until Sunday 28 June 2020, please ensure all comments and representations are submitted by then.
