Tiddington Road / Shipston Road Gyratory: Traffic lights?
The planning application for 270 houses on Arden Heath Farm at the top of Loxley Road contains a transport ssessment which includes a proposal for traffic lights on the southern gyratory.

The system would include traffic lights at the southern end of Clopton Bridge, on the Tiddington Road and on the gyratory outside the Swans Nest Hotel, plus a signalised crossing across the Shipston Road.

This would allow traffic on the Tiddington Road to have a right hand turn onto Clopton Bridge without having to go round the current gyratory system.

Under the proposed scheme Banbury Road would be made three lanes, from number 10 Banbury Road to the gyratory, by removing a section of the grass verges and possibly the trees.

The Shipston Road would be made three lanes alongside the Shell petrol station, also by removing some of the grass verge.

We would be interested in hearing residents views on the proposal click here to complete an online form which will be forwarded to your Ward Councillors.

Lib Dem district council Leader Cllr Richard Cheney said, ‘we’re obviously disappointed to lose two hard working Lib Dem councillors, but we remain the opposition on the district council. UKIP have polled strongly, but the even spread of their votes means that they still don’t hold any district council seats.

There are only two Independents left on the council, but the big losers this year are Labour, whose vote share dropped by 4% from the last district elections. This makes some of their claims in the run up to the election look very strange’*.

* in literature for the Guild and Hathaway ward Labour claimed, ‘Stratford Guild and Hathaway is a three-way marginal ward’. They actually came a poor fourth in the poll with 10.6% of the vote.
