A40 Improvements Consultation Details
Oxfordshire CC consultation opens 30 November
24 November 2018
Oxfordshire County Council has announced the dates for a public consultation on its plans for improvements on the A40 between Witney and Oxford.
The proposals include detailed designs and plans for the proposed Eynsham Park & Ride and A40 Bus Lane scheme, and upgraded cycling facilities on the north side of the A40. Further into the future there are possibilities of extending the A40 dual carriageway at Witney to the proposed Eynsham P&R, and widening the Duke’s Cut Canal and Wolvercote Railway bridges.
For people on bikes a new path is proposed from the A40 cycle route to National Cycle Route 5 on the Oxford Canal towpath, and the long-awaited dedicated walking and cycling route from Eynsham to Botley along the B4044 is back on the agenda.
There are three public exhibitions where the plans will be on show, with council representatives on hand to answer questions. [Update 2 Dec 2018: a fourth exhibition has been added to the schedule – see below.] The exhibition arrangements are:
|Saturday 1 December 2018||3pm – 6pm||Cassington Village Hall (Main Hall)
