Labour County Councillor Mark Cherry is submitting a motion to the next meeting of the full Oxfordshire County Council (5 April 2016) in a bid to improve safety on the M40 between junctions 8 to 11.

Mark Cherry said, “The memory of last year’s pile up in fog (14/2/15) involving 37 vehicles and one fatality is still with us and although an horrendous accident like that is a rarity there are way too many accidents on the M40 with increased congestion the likely cause.

Mark Cherry said, “The purpose of my motion, which is seeking cross-party support, is for the Council to call on the Secretary of State for Transport to bring forward safety improvements to the carriageway and slip roads.”
