Petition to reduce the speed limit on Lower Road, Eynsham
Our neighbour and friend of Willow Cottage Nursery Lidia Arciszewska has started a petition to Cllr Ian Hudspeth the leader of the Oxfordshire County Council to lower the road speed outside our Eynsham Nursery.
Lidia details that Lower Road is a narrow, winding, unclassified country road, which runs from the A4095 junction east of Long Hanborough to the Eynsham roundabout on the A40. In recent years, it has become a busy traffic corridor due to massive growth in population and intensified business and commerce activities nearby and further afield. It is also being routinely used by aggregate lorries and increasingly by drivers trying to avoid traffic congestion elsewhere. Because of its nature and condition, Lower Road is unsuitable to carry such large volumes of traffic. The current national speed limit of 60 mph is totally inappropriate.
Please do consider signing the petition and help us take action. It is highly important to us that our parents and teams are able to travel safely to our nurseries.
