First town in Oxfordshire adopts 20 mph speed limit

BY John Gebbels  

Witney in West Oxfordshire will adopt proposals to limit speeds to 20 mph on the town's roads. 

Yesterday, at an Oxfordshire County Council meeting, the decision was made to implement the scheme with new signage installed later this year. Andrew Gant, cabinet member for highways management is quoted by BBC News as hailing the schemes approval as "landmark moment" 

He also is quoted as adding: 

"Witney is just the start, and more than 70 other towns and villages will be benefiting from reduced speeds in the next financial year - followed by hundreds more in the next two years"
