Milton Hill/Potash Lane (Milton, Abingdon) Proposed 30mph Speed Limit & Traffic Calming RECONSULTATION

Following an earlier consultation carried out in July/August2018 (for details click here) regarding the proposals to introduce a lower speed limit & various traffic calming measures along Milton Hill (Potash Lane), Oxfordshire County Council is now re-consulting on the proposals due to the passage of time that has elapsed and to comply with Regulations. The proposals remain as originally consulted on, and comprise of the following specific measures:

  • introduce a 30mph speed limit in place of the national 60mph limit to a point 620 metres southwest of its junction with Trenchard Avenue,
  • Speed Cushions – 4 pairs approx. 3.7m long, 1.6m wide and 75mm high,
  • Raised Table – start of table located approx. 350m south of the junction with Trenchard Avenue, and will be 40m long (13m into the new access road), with ramps being 2m long and 75mm high (gradient of 1:30).
  • Raised Pinch Point Road Narrowing - 2 pinch point narrowing features 6m long, with 2m long ramps raising to 75mm high giving a gradient of 1:30
  • Entrance Feature Narrowing – located approx. 620 metres southwest of its junction with Trenchard Avenue at the start of the 30mph speed limit, reducing the carriageway to a width of 5.5m over a length of 7m.

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.12.6.299) to the address below by 23 October 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.
