5 MPH speed sign missing

Reported via desktop in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 16:32, Friday 17 June 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Entrance to single track lane used to have 5mph speed signs. Signs missing so there is currently no speed limit. Real danger of large vehicles eg Amazon delivery vans unused to area crossing the dangerous junction on Sustrans Phoenix trail ( mix of small children, cycles, pedestrians, horses etc etc). Signs needed both ends required. We have observed many vehicles travelling very fast in spite of last minute slow markings not visible in snow and poor visibility. An accident waiting to happen ?

  • Thank-you for your enquiry, like the majority of the roads within Thame, the speed limit is currently 30mph (However we understand that the Town Council is currently considering making an application for Thame to be part of the Counties current initiative to make 20mph more commonplace in the Towns and Villages within the County – for further details please do take a look here: www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/residents/roads-and-transport/traffic/requesting-20mph

    It must be remembered that, even if a speed limit is set (in this case 30mph) vehicles should still be driven with due care and attention, which includes driving at an appropriate speed to the exact location and circumstances. We note that this location is not recorded to having any injury accidents and it was only last year that appropriate ‘Slow’ markings were installed and from the feedback we received at the time, were very well received. We would therefore not be looking to undertake anything further at this time as we await the outcome with the 20mph aspect.
