Northcourt Road (Abingdon) Proposed Traffic Calming Amendments

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to construct the following traffic calming measures on Northcour Road in Abingdon, which are being proposed in conjunction with the extensive re-surfacing scheme (i.e. the entire length of the road) planned to take place in August 2020. Specifically the proposals consist of the following measures:

Speed Cushions - comprising of 5 pairs, with each cushion being 3m long, 1.75m wide & 75mm high (with gradients no steeper than 1 in 8) located approximately:

  • 64 metres east of its junction with Wootton Road,
  • 180 metres east of its junction with Wootton Road,
  • 30 metres southwest of its junction with Northcourt Mews,
  • 28 metres southwest of its junction with Northcourt Lane, and
  • 34 metres west of its junction with Oxford Road.

Raised 'Informal' Crossing Points - will be approx. 4.65m long & 5.5m wide, including ramp lengths of 1.1m & height of 75mm (with gradients no steeper than 1 in 15) located approximately:

  • 17 metres east of its junction with Darrell Way,
  • 17 metres southwest of its junction with Brookside,
  • 26 metres northeast of its junction with Sellwood Road, and
  • 16 metres southwest of its junction with Shelley Close

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/12.6.100) to the address below by 08 May 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 are planned 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.
