At the moment there is unrestricted parking available on the left hand side which forces vehicles to the wrong side of Lambrick Way just before the blind bend The solution will be to install double yellow lines to theLHS over an appropriate distance You will note in one photo a vehicle had to mount the right hand footpath to avoid traffic coming from the direction of Preston Road into Lambrick Way Thank you and we wait your response

  • The installation of formal waiting restrictions (yellow lines) requires the implementation of a ‘Traffic Regulation Order’, this involves a long and expensive legal process including public consultation, 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.
