Extend no waiting restriction to include outer side of Boulter Road bend

Reported via desktop in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 15:04, Wednesday 31 May 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Back in 2020 waiting instructions were introduced such that double yellow lines were put down on the inside of the Boulter Road bend. Unfortunately this went only part of the way to solving issues of road safety in this area. Could the long awaited double yellow lines now be included on the outside of the Boulter Drive bend too? When going south drivers still have to drive blind around the bend against oncoming traffic. Local residents who use this road, day in day out, would support this. It would make the area safer for children attending the local primary school, and also reduce congestion around the GP surgery. Also could the planned reduction in speed limit from 30 to 20 mph be applied now, rather than wait for the grouped changes for Dunmore Road area, as Boulter Drive is a particularly busy residential area road. A reduction of the speed limit to 10 mph might also be warranted outside Long Furlong Primary School to bring road safety more on a par with other local schools such as St Nicolas Primary School, Boxhill walk . (If this needs to go to council member to raise, please could it be forwarded within OCC. Many people here would support this. Many thanks.

  • Thank you for your report. The installation formal waiting restrictions (yellow lines) requires the implementation of a traffic regulation order which involves a long and expensive legal process including full consultation, external funding would be required for this process. It should be noted that if vehicles are parking in either a dangerous position or in such a manner as to cause an obstruction of the public highway they are committing an offence under section 22 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, this legislation is enforced by Thames Valley Police.
