Acton Turville - B4040/B4039 - Casualty Reduction Route Action

In the last 3 years (November 2007 - end October 2010*) there have been 9 reported injury accidents on the whole of the B4040/B4039, 1 of which was fatal and 4 of which were serious accidents.

The following measures, which are intended to reduce the severity and number of accidents on the whole of the B4040/B4039 are proposed for introduction:-

  • Signing of lower speed limits
  • Vehicle activated 'Bend-Ahead' warning sign (Solar powered)

Subject to your comments, we hope to implement the scheme during the next (2011/12) financial year.

*These are provisional figures from the local police authority.


This consultation has now closed and we are analysing the results which will be published here in due course.

Geographical area Cotswold Edge
Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
