An urgent review of speed restrictions within Cane End

Reported in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category by Camilla Skinner at 15:48, Tue 3 March 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

The residents within Cane End are put at risk to pull in or out of their driveways as all passing motorists never stick to the 40mph speed limit. An urgent review of the positions + size of the current signage needs to be addressed. The CANE END signs at either end of this residential part of the notoriously dangerous A4074 are damaged ,dirty and currently make no difference to dangerous speeding traffic. Please review ASAP before a resident of this village is injured !

  • Thank you for your report and please accept our apologies for the delay in response. The current 40mph speed limit through Cane End is already the lowest on the A4074 within the immediate vicinity and was introduced in the relatively recent past. It is now recognized national surveys that, during the current periods of covid related 'lockdowns' , traffic volumes have reduced but the speed of individual vehicles have increased. It is fair to expect matters to revert to the previous 'normal' as the country recovers from this and at that point it maybe considered a priority for the Parish Council to consider this further.
