A420 Botley Road & B4495 Windmill Road (Oxford) Proposed 20mph Speed Limits

Following on from previous consultations carried out for proposals on the A420 Botley Road in October/November 2019 (for details: click here), and on the B4495 Windmill Road in July/August2017 (for details: click here), Oxfordshire County Council is now proposing to re-consult on amendments to the previously proposed limit on the Botley Road, in addition to those that were approved previously for the Windmill Road.

The amendments are being put forward following discussions with local residents, members of the public and thre local County Councillors during the Cabinet Members Decision meeting (for details: click here) as which approval for the Botley Road proposals were given, as well as the expiration of the 2-year period within which changes need to be implemented in relation to the Windmill Road scheme.

Oxfordshire County Council is therefore proposing to reduce the speed limits on the following roads within Oxford:

  1. extend the earlier proposed 20mph speed limit westwards on the A420 Botley Road, in order to cover the approved new crossing to the west of the Waitrose store,
  2. introduce a proposed 20mph speed limit along the entrire length of the B4495 Windmill Road, in place of the existing 30mph speed 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, via email or in writing (quoting ref: CM/12.6.149) to the address below by 28 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.
