Traffic sensitive streets consultation

Posted on behalf of Oxfordshire County Council

Oxfordshire County Council has a legal duty to coordinate road works across the county, including those undertaken by utility companies. As part of this duty we can designate certain streets as ‘traffic-sensitive’, which means on these roads we can better regulate the flow of traffic by managing when works happen. For example, no road works in the centre of Henley-on-Thames during the Regatta.

Our last full review of the county’s traffic-sensitive streets was undertaken over 10- years ago and this now needs to be updated to ensure that the designations we have set are fit for purpose and effective.


Have your say


At this half way point in the consultation I am writing to encourage further views to be submitted on the proposals. To have your say, please visit our consultation portal, read the documents supplied and complete the online form. The deadline for your response is Friday 14th June 2019.


If you have already responded, thank you. Please have your say, even if it is a “no comment”, as views from all stakeholders are greatly appreciated.

I have also attached the link to the consultation below.


The documents uploaded to the portal provide:

  • the criteria a street needs to meet for it to be designated as traffic-sensitive
  • a list of the streets that we propose should be designated as traffic-sensitive – highlighting any changes in status for specific streets
  • maps showing the location of the proposed traffic sensitive streets
