Crays Pond Crossroads (Goring Heath) Proposed 30mph & 40mph Speed Limits

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to reduce the speed limits on the B4526 Reading Road and the B471 Goring/Whitchurch Road at the Crays Pond crossroads in Goring Heath. The proposals are being put forward following road safety concerns raised by the Parish Council & local County Councillor. Specifically the proposals comprise of the following measures:

  • introduce a 30mph speed limit in place of the existing 40mph limit covering the Crays Pond crossroads:
    • On the B4526 Reading Road for approx. 530 metres extending either side of the junctions with the Goring & Whitchurch Roads, and then
    • on the B471 Goring Road for approx. 240 metres northwards and for the same amount southwards from the Reading Road on the *B471 Whitchurch Road
  • Thereafter - introduce 40mph speed limits as follows:
    • On the B4526 Reading Road (western end) to its current terminal point where it meets the National 60 mph speed limit,
    • On the B4526 Reading Road (eastern end) to be extended for approx. 105 metres from the existing terminal point, and then
    • on the B471 Goring Road – from the end of the proposed 30mph speed limit, will be extended for approx. 190 metres from the existing terminal point, replacing the current 30mph south of by the same amount.

* a minor amendment to the terminal point of the 30mph/50mph speed limit will be made.
