Road blocked

Reported via mobile in the Highway Schemes category anonymously at 15:14, Tue 29 June 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

While trying to get to Nuffield Orthopaedic Hospital I was stopped from using Margaret Road by two volunteers who stated they were entitled to that under powers granted them by Oxford County Council. I would like somebody to enlighten me as to what powers they were using and where they drew their authority to block the highway.

Council ref: ENQ21899199

  • They are making the area around the school safer at start and finishing times. Limiting the amount of passing traffic can only be a good to protect the young children. Maybe stick to the main roads!

  • Thank you for your report. This section of road has been subject to an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order prohibiting motor vehicles at school arrival and departure times. This Order is due to be made permanent shortly and the volunteers replaced with signing and ANPR cameras.
