New speed limits for roads in Harwell

A new 40mph speed limit will be introduced on Grove Road, Harwell.

Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet member for Environment, Cllr Yvonne Constance, has approved the new limit which will run between the junction with the A4130 and a new junction giving access to residential development on the north side of Grove Road.

There will also be a new 20mph speed limit eastwards from the 40mph speed limit to meet the B4493 - with the 20mph speed limit also including the other residential roads to the west of the B4493 in the vicinity of the new development. This will replace the current 30mph speed limit on these roads.

Revised traffic calming measures will also be implemented on Grove Road in the vicinity of the new access.
