Thank you for this enquiry and for noting that this is related to your other post about this same route. Unfortunately, placing the signs as you suggest is not a straightforward matter as it would require the implementation of a 'Traffic Regulation Order' which involves a long and expensive legal process including full consultation, unfortunately Oxfordshire County Council could not fund such a scheme at this time. If this does continue to be a significant concern then we would suggest an approach is made to your Town Council so that due consideration can be given towards its priority within the local area and so that any proposal can be endorsed and promoted locally. Town / Parish Councils are also well placed to secure the necessary funding for such a scheme should it be progressed with ourselves.
