A PINCH point could be created in a Henley street to make it safer for pedestrians to cross.
The cost of building out the pavement on either side of a small section of Gravel Hill would be about £12,000.
Oxfordshire County Council, the highways authority, has pledged half the money if the other half is found from elsewhere.
Area steward Keith Stenning told a meeting of the town council’s traffic advisory committee that the scheme would need to be approved by a conservation officer.
He suggested staging a trial using “cheese blocks” to create a temporary pinch point.
Mr Stenning added: “We will do an informal consultation and post a few letters and go up and down the road. Â If anyone kicks up a fuss we will pass it through to the cabinet member to decide.”
