The A40 between Witney and Oxford was another 3 lane road fairly close to you Peter. Dreadful accident record.

You're right Old English! Oxfordshire roads........, yes...... While the rest of the Country was updating their roads by widening, straightening and re-surfacing etc etc, Oxfordshire did none of this. It just blasted out the old white lines, formulated new lanes, painted new white lines - and called that 'substantial upgrading'. But still leaving the roads in Oxfordshire as a quaint reminders of how things were in the 50's.

The Lancia/Alfa/BMW is just out of shot. :lol:
