Road Repairs on Wroxton Lane 24 -27 July

Drainage work and carriageway patching on Wroxton Lane is programmed by Oxfordshire county council from July 24 for 3 days.

The plan is to install a new offlet and larger diameter pipe to outfall into the stream opposite Horley Mill, and resurface the rough bits of road and re-profile around the gullys opposite Brook House to hopefully avoid water ponding issues.

The existing offlet opposite Horley Mill will be moved slightly towards the bridge, and the pipe trench hand dug because of the services to align the pipe through the gate so it doesn’t kink as now.

Highway Verges – Please be Aware

A message to Horley residents on behalf of the Parish Council

Concerns have been raised with the Parish Council regarding items being placed on highway verges, which might comprise an obstruction.  The Council is aware of a number of places around the village where items have been placed on highway verges, and queries have been raised as to whether this is legal.

Highway verges are the responsibility of the County Council, and the County Council have advised that in most cases the public highway includes the verge, and extends up to the boundary of the adjoining land.  Anything placed permanently on the highway may potentially comprise an obstruction, and to obstruct the highway is an offence.  Before placing anything permanently on the highway, people are advised to contact the County Council seeking permission to do so.  If an accident were to occur, such as a car swerving onto the verge to avoid an oncoming vehicle, and colliding with an obstruction, the person placing the obstruction is likely to be liable.
