Safe crossing agreed

By Sarah Edwards

Oxfordshire County Council has agreed to install a signalised crossing at the bottom of Collinwood Road across the A40.

The crossing will give the residents of Risinghurst and Barton the safe crossing that has been required for years. It should also allow the opening of the right hand turn out of Collinwood Road so that residents no longer have to negotiate the Green Road roundabout when wanting to travel east on the A40.

This will form part of the A40 strategy which has to date been focussing on the west portion but will now include this junction. The news follows an ongoing campaign by the local community.
