Speeding through the village and in particular passing Chestnut Drive.

As a resident of the new builds on Chestnut Drive that specifcakkt face Sutton Wick Lane for 3 years now. I am well placed to comment on the speed issue for this junction. The speed of cars and in particular motorbikes and buses! is a hugely significant concern. There is little to no road markings No speed control measures and a misleading sign that denotes Sutton Wick Lane as the only junction (opposite Chestnut Drive). Trying to cross or pull out of Chestnut Drive is very dangerous due to the volume and speed of vehicles going into Abingdon. Or exiting Abingdon. Surely some speed control measures, a chicane, etc must be considered. A speed camera even? This junction/stretch of road is a significant accident waiting to happen and some preventative speed awareness action must undertaken. Please do not merely close this asking me to call 101. The Police and council have a joint responsibly to ensure our roads are risked assessed and more importantly safe. A speed measuring service was carried out for 20 minutes 2 years ago and that was it! Some further preventive action must be undertaken if only to highlight the dangers.
