Traffic calming feature is OK’d for Arncott

Another road safety feature for Arncott has been approved by Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet member for Environment,

A traffic calming build-out will be installed on the Murcott Road at Arncott, approximately 20 metres south-west of its junction with The Village Close.

Murcott Road which is long and straight with good visibility approaching the village, meaning that traffic has a tendency to exceed the existing speed limit of 30mph as it approaches the residential part of the village.

With new development extending the village along the Murcott Road it was felt that some traffic calming measures would be appropriate to extend the current series of buildouts.

Funding for the installation of the traffic calming build-out has been provided by £13,000 of developer funds .
