Need double yellows please

The entrance to Farm Close Road from Ladder Hill has a Give Way area because priority is given to traffic driving west. Cars are often parked at this Give Way point - the drivers are presumably visiting the adjacent Co-op. Since the Railway pub car park disappeared, this problem has become so much worse. There are often two cars parked here - I once saw three crammed into that spot.

When entering Farm Close Road from Ladder Hill one is forced to hold back further up the junction which encourages others to overtake while you wait, or one is forced into the path of oncoming traffic. This along with the increased parking along the rest of Farm Close Road is causing congestion and dodgy manoeuvres.

Please can we have double yellow lines installed here? This problem will not go away without some sort of intervention and it appears to be getting worse as time goes on.

  • The installation of formal waiting restrictions (yellow lines) requires the implementation of a ‘Traffic Regulation Order’, this involves a long and expensive legal process including public consultation, I regret that Oxfordshire County Council do not currently have the available funding for such a scheme.

    We would suggest that an initial approach is made to your Parish Council so that due consideration can be given towards its priority within the local area and so that the proposal can be endorsed and promoted locally. Parish Councils are also well placed to secure the necessary financial cost to such a scheme.
