We do not have any traffic calming measures

First published in News

I AM writing concerning your story about traffic speed in Kennington (September 2).

Could I point out that there is a 30mph limit in all of Kennington. What we do not have in Upper Road is any traffic calming measures, i.e. road humps or speed cushions.

Perhaps the inconsiderate motorists who speed in built-up areas would feel differently had they caused or been involved in an accident that caused injury or worse.

Today’s letters

Our fight for full inquest into death will continue

Oxford Mail:

4:07pm Monday 25th May 2015

JUST a brief note to thank your paper for printing our letter concerning Dr David Christopher Kelly, and our peaceful campaign to force “the establishment” in Oxford to hold a full coroner’s inquest into his suspicious and untimely death in July 2003.

Castle Street bus stop is a real problem for elderly

Oxford Mail:

4:06pm Monday 25th May 2015

I KNOW someone has written about this problem some weeks ago. I am wondering if anything is being done.

Buskers lift atmosphere and we should be proud

Oxford Mail:

4:05pm Monday 25th May 2015

IS the city council mad? One of few things that helps lift the atmosphere of our depressing city shopping streets is the busking.

Why is Kidlington getting the rough end of things?

Oxford Mail:

4:05pm Monday 25th May 2015

NOW the elections are over and the Conservatives have taken full control of Cherwell District Council, are the residents of Kidlington expecting more of our council tax and more attention to the fast deterioration of our village coming our way? I think not.

We have a good MP who has already made a mark

Oxford Mail:

4:04pm Monday 25th May 2015

CATHERINE Bearder says that Layla Moran would have made an excellent MP.

To the writer. Speak with your local police contact in Kennington and organise a local meeting of residents. You will soon then get some action from the city council. Just accepting a 30mph and putting up with idiots who do not observe it will get you nowhere in the short or long term .

Why would the city council have anything to do with with what happens over the border in Kennington?
