Incorrect speed limit sign

Reported in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 11:15, Mon 25 November 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

When Tidmore Lane was resurfaced, a national speed limit sign was erected indicating that the speed limit on Tidmore Lane is 60mph. This surely has to be a mistake?

It is a single lane country track, with no pavements on either side and frequently has people walking on it. At the point the Lane meets Oxford Road it is 30mph speed limit and at the point it meets Reading Road, it is just approx. 10meters from the 30mph sign entering the village of Woodcote.

Please can the speed limit (and signage) on Tidmore Lane be changed to 30mph before someone is hurt and an accident caused.

  • We have checked the County Council’s personal injury road traffic accident database for the last 5 year period and am pleased to inform you that there have been no such accidents along this section of road.

    Unfortunately the very good injury accident history means that the requested measures will not score highly against a Local Transport Plan objective, and I am afraid I can offer no prospect of them being pursued in the foreseeable future.
