Pidnell Bridge - A4095 Radcot Road (Radcot) Weight Limit Revocation

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to remove the existing weight limit which prohibits the passage of track laying vehicles and vehicles with an axle weight exceeding 6 tons over the Pidnell Bridge. The proposals are being put forward following works to the bridge, which has been strengthened sufficiently not to be subject of a weight limit. Specifically the proposal seeks to:

  • revoke the existing Oxfordshire County Council (Pidnell Bridge, Radcot) (Weight Restriction) Order 1976 as amended by the Oxfordshire County Council (Metrication of Weight Restrictions) Order 1992.

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: AK/12.6.230) to the address below by 14 February 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.

This consultation has now closed and feedback is available.
