Access to Witney

 Welcome to the Access to Witney public engagement 

We’re improving the A40 between Witney and Oxford to deliver safer and more reliable travel options for those who rely on it for work, leisure and economic success.

We’re investing in six major schemes, two of which have already progressed past the consultation phase (Eynsham Park and Ride and Oxford North) and more information is available about these on the improving the A40 pages of the county council’s website.

We now invite your views on four remaining schemes. In this consultation you can have your say on the Access to Witney scheme, which proposes the installation of west-facing slip roads at the A40/B4022 Shores Green Junction to help reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality and support delivery of planned housing growth in Witney.

The three remaining schemes: A40 Dual Carriageway Extension, A40 Integrated Bus Lanes and A40 Dukes Cut have their own consultation called ‘A40 HIF2 Smart Corridor’, which is running at the same time. You can find it on the county council’s consultation portal .

Recognising advice from government on COVID-19 safety, it is not possible to hold a public drop-in exhibition on the plans. Instead, the council is holding online engagement sessions to present the proposals and provide an opportunity for residents to ask questions and offer comments.
