20mph limits coming to Bloxham
The A361 through the village will be subject to the new lower limit
Drivers heading through Bloxham on the main A361 will now have stick to a 20mph speed limit. A decision to implement the new lower limit was agreed at Oxfordshire County Council this lunchtime.
The proposal was discussed at a meeting chaired by Andrew Gant, the Cabinet Member for Highway Management, at County Hall. All roads in Bloxham will be subject to a 20mph limit.
During a consultation 20 people objected to the idea with a further 13 raising concerns. But a majority of 35 people were in support.
Cherwell District Council said they supported a 20mph limit on the village’s narrow and more constrained roads but suggested the proposals be re-considered on more strategic routes. It also believed that in many locations parked cars already kept speeds below 20mph.
Bloxham Parish Council supported the plans and requested for 20 limits on strategic routes.
