  • Thank you for your report. As the route is a public highway and having inspected the location vehicles do have a choice of route that they take. Having looked into the recent history of the route I understand that the junction 'Give Way' priorities were changed a few years ago to help slow vehicles at the junctions. If there is a desire for 'Please drive carefully' temporary information signs then we would suggest that enquiries are made with the Town Council so that they can consider this (in context with all other routes in Didcot) and if they consider it to be a priority then we would work with the town council towards seeing them installed. We trust this assists and apologise for the delay in response to your enquiry.
