Traffic Sensitive Streets

Traffic sensitive streets consultation 

Oxfordshire County Council has a legal duty to coordinate road works across the county, including those undertaken by utility companies. As part of this duty we can designate certain streets as ‘traffic-sensitive’, which means on these roads we can better regulate the flow of traffic by managing when works happen. For example, no road works in the centre of Henley-on-Thames during the Regatta.

Our last full review of the county’s traffic-sensitive streets was undertaken over 10- years ago and this now needs to be updated to ensure that the designations we have set are fit for purpose and effective.

Have your say

To have your say, please read the documents supplied (below) and complete the online form. The deadline for your response is Friday 14th June 2019.

The documents available are:

  • the criteria a street needs to meet for it to be designated as traffic-sensitive, including the list of streets that we propose should be designated as traffic-sensitive [Traffic Sensitive Streets Briefing]
  • maps showing the location of the proposed traffic sensitive streets

If you have any problems accessing these documents, please do get in touch and we will send them to you directly.

Thank you in advance for your help.
