Traffic lights needed

It is very difficult to exit the "High Street" road onto "Park Drive" turning right, more so at rush hour. Drivers often have to drive out aggressively into moving traffic just to get out. Also morning rush hour drivers passing the junction slow down to let cars out of "High Street" this then backs up traffic all the way onto Milton interchange causing daily gridlock which backs up the northbound & southbound A34 offramps causing cars in the slow lane of A34 to brake suddenly and/or move over to avoid stationary cars, this is an accident waiting to happen. Please investigate best solution, but lights where I suggest seems a logical start to prioritise traffic on Park Drive to keep Milton Interchange moving.

  • Would either a roundabout not keep the traffic flowing, or, make it left turn only and use the next roundabout to then leave the park? It is a pain to get out of, but also when the traffic stops to let cars out, it takes a matter of moments for the traffic to back all the way back up to the interchange, causing further heavy traffic to congregate on the milton interchange

  • The installation of such a scheme involves a long and expensive legal process, 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.
