Dangerous Junction

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and South Oxfordshire District Council 5 minutes later

I am referring to the junction on Chinnor Hill - approximate postcode OX39 4BG.

Traffic coming down Chinnor Hill (marked with a blue arrow) to the T junction with Chinnor Hill approach a Give Way sign, where there is no view out on to main road to the right. I have countless times seen cars fail to stop at this junction and cause the traffic coming up the main Chinnor Hill to swerve to avoid a collision. Surely there should be a STOP sign at a junction such as this?

The volume of traffic around Chinnor is now greatly increased and it is only a matter of time before an accident happens here.

  • Thank you for your report. We have investigated this and we have found that the current 'Give Way' system is adequate for the road. In order to install a new 'STOP' sign the visibility has to be so restricted that it is essential for drivers to stop before entering the major road. This does not include obstructions like vegetation.
