Speed signs are overgrown and not of adequate size. There is an enormous amount of speeding when the road is not busy.

  • The responsibility for preventing vegetation from overgrowing the highway (and in this case obscuring traffic signs) rests with the owner of the tree. Consequently a notice will be sent requiring them to cut back the vegetation.

    The size of this and other repeater signs in the road are of regulation size and therefore cannot be enlarged. Unlike this portion of Hollow Way, Abingdon Road is not subject to a 20mph limit as a result there are no 20mph repeater signs. Therefore those referred to along the Abingdon Road are Terminal signs that mark the start of the 20mph limit in the sideroads. These are the same size as the terminal sign located slightly north of Baracks Lane where the Hollow Way 20mph limit begins.
