Proposed Traffic Changes to Nelson Street

nelson street

At the request of local Councillors, Oxfordshire County Council is proposing to make part of Nelson Street one-way t to improve pedestrian and vehicle safety and to maintain reasonable access to property. 

The Town Council has received several comments from concerned residents about vehicles mounting the pavement in order to avoid oncoming traffic, sometimes narrowly missing pedestrians. The proposed traffic regulation aims to combat this and improve traffic flow around this area of the town.

Objections to the proposal, specifying the grounds on which they are made, should be sent in writing to Traffic Regulation Team, Director for Environment and Economy, Speedwell House, Oxford, OX1 1NE no later than Friday 13 February. 
Further details of the proposal can be viewed on request at the Town Hall Information Centre.
