Village main road legally classified as 20mph due to an admin error


The process of amending the legal documents is underway for the A4260 in Adderbury

A section of the Oxford Road through Adderbury has been designated as having a 20mph limit in legal documentation due at an admin error.   Officially new speed limits came into force in the village yesterday (September 18).

In June when it was agreed to lower speed limits on roads through the village to 20mph, the A4260 and Berry Hill Road were specifically excluded.   Instead these would retain their existing 30mph limits.  But the official legal documentation which has been published makes no reference to the exemption, instead noting a blanket rollout of a 20mph limit throughout Adderbury.

The legal paperwork is at odds with the street signage in the village, which advises drivers the Oxford Road has a 30mph limit.

A spokesperson for Oxfordshire County Council told Banbury FM the documentation was incorrect due to an “admin error”.   They are currently undertaking the process to amend the legal documents.

Initially the Oxford Road had been included amongst the roads being proposed for a 20mph limit, but during a consultation both Cherwell District Council and bus operators expressed their concerns that this was unduly low for a strategic road.
