The Kings Corner Junction

One of the frequent concerns I hear as I listen to Oakwood residents is improving safety at the junction near the Kings Corner public house.

Lime Lane has become increasingly busy in recent months as the number of houses and businesses in and around Oakwood has grown. Specifically, the staggered junction between Lime Lane, Morley Road and Derby Road, near the Kings Corner public house is often dangerous due to higher traffic volumes and thoughtless speeding, particularly at night.

The Liberal Democrats in Oakwood call on Derby City Council to work with neighbouring councils to:

  • Improve the staggered junction between Lime Lane, Morley Road and Derby Road by the installation of lighting, improved signage and road markings.
  • Introduce a safer speed limit at this junction, extending to beyond where driveways to houses on Oakwood open out directly onto Lime Lane.

Do you agree with us? If so, please sign our petition. Thank you!

Looking down Morley Road from Lime Lane. A demolished street sign and marks on the verge suggest problems.
The view towards the junction from Lime Lane – a 60mph national speed limit zone. The slight rise in the road before the junction makes this a difficult approach for vehicles.
