Old Abingdon Road (Oxford) Proposed Traffic Management Amendment

Following an internal review of the existing Traffic Regulation Orders that govern traffic management in the New Hinksey area of Oxford, along with investigation into the use of cameras for enforcement purposes - Oxfordshire County Council is proposing to make minor administrative changes to the legal documentation  that cover the short section of `bus lane/clearway` in Old Abingdon Road which bypasses the traffic light junction of the A4144 Abingdon Road opposite the Travelodge Hotel entrance.

The `Prohibition of Motor Vehicles` is widely abused and may be enforced by cameras in the future - leading to penalty charge notices being issued. There are various exemptions which include: Buses, Taxis, Licensed Private Hire and emergency vehicles, as well as for access to property Nos.408 - 414 Abingdon Road.

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.12.6.320) to the address below by 05 April 2019. 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 2019. 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.
