A DECISION will be made next week on a proposed new speed limit for a road between Milton and Drayton.

Oxfordshire County Council is planning to reduce the speed limit on the Milton Road between its junction with the B4016 Drayton to Sutton Courtenay Road and Milton village.

At the moment the speed limit along the road is the national speed limit but the council plans to reduce it to 40mph following safety concerns.

The decision will be made by county councillor David Nimmo Smith at a meeting at County Hall in Oxford on Thursday at 10.30am.
