picture of new pedestrian crossing

Just in time for lockdown the new pedestrian crossing on Banbury Road is now up and working.

Located on Banbury Road opposite Judds Garage this now offers villagers an alternative to the single crossing on the High Street. The new crossing is also worth noting for local drivers who will need to get used to its location and be prepared to stop in a new place within the village!

Keep safe.
