A418 Oxford Road (Tiddington) Proposed Puffin Crossing & Prohibition of Entry

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to develop improved crossing facilities for pedestrians on the A418 Oxford Road in Tiddington. Specifically, the changes comprise of the following:

  • Construction of a Puffin Crossing - a signalised crossing for use by pedestrians only, to be located on the A418 Oxford Road approx. 30* metres west of its junction with Ickford Road,
  • In order to ensure the safety of pedestrians using the new crossing, a ‘No Entry for Vehicular Traffic’ restriction to vehicles travelling from Oxford Road into the Oxford Road Service Road (eastern end) located approx. 25* metres west of Ickford Road (in front of the Fox and Goat PH) is also being proposed.

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.12.6.385) to the address below by 19 February 2021. 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 early in 2021 (the Forward Plan of decisions meetings can be viewed here). The papers for the meeting will be available on the County Council’s website about a week before the meeting.
