Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later
Most vehicles still travelling at 50 mph in the 30 mph zone. No other major A road entering a town would not have a means of traffic calming before reaching a residential area. There is soon to be a primary school opening at MPF with many children & families crossing this dangerous road at various points.

We have been carrying out some data audits and found your enquiry. For some reason, this has been reported to Oxfordshire County Council, instead of Reading Borough Council.
I apologies for this data error and will forward your enquiry on to Reading BC.
Regards, Anna - Oxfordshire County Council

This is not solely an issue for Reading Borough Council, who have been informed and pursued on this matter for updates on any action multiple times for over 2 years now. Please refer to council references ENQ19845864 and Council ref: ENQ19830134, the issue is excessive speed along the whole stretch of road between Chazey and Caversham, which is South Oxfordshire. With less traffic on the road of late, many selfish, dangerous drivers are driving even faster - treating this stretch of road like a motorway. Action is required immediately before more fatalities occur.
