No speeding problem

SPEEDING is not a problem on Fair Mile in Henley, according to a traffic survey.

Oxfordshire County Council carried the survey in both directions from November 25 to December 2, checking the speeds of drivers going in and out of the town.

It found that the average speed during the day was between 33mph and just below 49mph. The limit is 60mph.

The survery results were presented to the town council’s traffic advisory committee on Tuesday. Chris Hulme, a Thames Valley Police traffic enforcement officer, said: “It basically says there is not a speeding problem on Fair Mile. The average is in the mid-40s. None of the readings was over 60mph.”

Roy Atkin, of Elizabeth Road, suggested that the speed limit should be reduced to 40mph, making it easier for people to cross the road and safer for cyclists using the path that runs along Fair Mile. Mr Hulme responded: “The speeds are already below the national limit.”
