Speed of vehicles.

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and West Oxfordshire District Council 1 minute later

I have concerns about the speed of vehicles, using the Curbridge Road, to the south of the Thorney Leys roundabout. There is a current 30mph speed limit in force, for vehicles from the RA to just past the entrance to Coral Springs, where it increases to 40mph. A further short distance it increases to the national speed limit. Within in these points, are pedestrian & vehicular access to a Care Home, a residential area and access to the growing development of Windrush Place. Windrush place will grow to have a 1000 homes, and a Primary School. It also has two bus stops for the S1 service. There are two island crossings, for pedestrians from the aforementioned properties & bust stops. It is my opnion, that even if vehicles are observing the posted speed limits, the road layout is unsafe for predestrians, on a road that is busy, even at off peak times. I have also observed vehicles not observing posted limits, leaving the RA and driving at accessive speeds. Could the road layout be re-evaluted, to consider speed limits, pedestrian crossings & traffic calming measures. I understand one resident from the Care Home, has already been injured, during a traffic incident at the RA.

  • Thanks for your reply. What about the poor placement & design of the speed limit zones. Thats not an issue or consideration of the police, who just enforce the limits. Also what about consideration of improvements for safe crossing for pedestrians?

    Somewhat disappointed in the response.

  • There was an accident again here (15/3/19 I believe), where a car pulled out of the Care Home, and collided with a car approaching from Carterton. The driver of the car from the Care Home, alleged that the other car was travelling too fast.

    The road is has debris, mud etc, left from previous deliveries to the new development, that has not been removed.

  • There was another road collision here on Tuesday 7th May 19. One vehicle leaving Coral Springs, one driving from Witney. One of the vehicles overturned.

    Is it not time consideration is given to this busy section of road, and some sort of calming measures put in place?

  • I have seen a further near miss here today, with one vehicle exiting the roundabout (from North East Curbridge road) as speeds approaching 40min and narrowly braked in time to avoid car exiting Spring Meadow bound towards Cubridge.
