Need white lines to mark edgeof narrow road on bends.

Reported in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 22:54, Tuesday 16 July 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

The edge of the carriageway was marked in the past by white lines on the narrow bends in the road. The road goes up to the drystone wall of the garden of Cavarige House and there is no verge offering protection from cars hitting into it (especially large farm machinery). Lines (or bollards) should help.

  • Whilst at this time we appreciate the concerns raised, after a review, there is no evidence to support the need for edge of carriageway markings at this time. There have been zero ‘reported-injury’ accidents (we don’t hold information on damage only) on the B4020 Black Bourton Road between its junctions with the A4095 Bampton Road & Calcroft Lane during the last complete 5 years (2014-2018) as well as up to the end of April this year (the latest we have in the system). Their introduction may, quite possibly, cause a greater risk to oncoming traffic, however we will continue to monitor, and keep under review..
