Denchworth Road & Newlands Drive (Grove) Proposed Speed Limit, Prohibition of Driving & Traffic Calming

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to make the following changes in response to the development of land at Grove, adjacent to Denchworth Road:

  • To extend the 30mph speed limit (in place of the current unrestricted 60mph limit) on Denchworth Road leading southwards out of Grove, meeting the 30mph at the roundabout junction with Mably Way, and 
  • to remove 2 current sections of road from use by motor vehicles only:
    (a) The north end of Denchworth Road is being realigned slightly to the east to meet with a new Cane Lane T-junction making a section of the north end of the existing Denchworth Road redundant and
    (b) A new T-junction for Cane Lane is planned slightly to its south making the westernmost end of the existing Cane Lane redundant.

There will continue to be rights of way for pedestrians and cyclists on the closed sections of highway.

It is also being proposed to construct the following traffic features on Newlands Drive, as detailed below:

  • 6 (six) extended flat top road humps at various side-road junctions, and 
  • 4 (four) pairs of speed cushions at intervals along its length.

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: AK/12.6.235) 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.
