Access to Headington - Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) - Other Options

 

Traffic Regulation Order consultation on other proposals for Headley Way and Windmill Road

 

What is this consultation about?

Oxfordshire County Council is consulting on proposals for Headley Way and Windmill Road as part of the Access to Headington project.

Previously, during February and March 2016, the county council consulted on proposals that removed all on-street parking along Headley Way and Windmill Road. Following feedback on these earlier proposals other designs have been prepared that retain some parking while also providing continuous cycle lanes and more space to ease traffic flow.    

 

Headley Way

A detailed plan of the Headley Way proposals can be viewed here. The proposals include:

  • The retention of approx. 15 parking bays on the western side of Headley Way between Bowness Avenue and Copse Lane. Parking is to be provided half on and half off the footway with dropped kerbs. Some localised widening is proposed to allow more footway space. 
  • The retention of approx. 13 parking bays on the western side of Headley Way between Bowness Avenue and Snowdon Mede. Parking is to be provided half on and half off the footway with dropped kerbs. This requires the removal of some vegetation to widen the footway. 
  • A 1.5m advisory cycle lane on the eastern side of Headley Way, with this widening to 1.8m where on-street parking is provided.
  • On the downhill (western) side of Headley Way, between Bowness Avenue and Copse Lane, the advisory cycle lane width is proposed to be 1.25m plus a 0.75m buffer.

These proposals result in the loss of approx. 17 parking bays on Headley Way.

 

Windmill Road

A detailed plan of the Windmill Road proposals can be viewed here. The proposals include:

  • The retention of approx. 7 on-street parking bays on the western side of Windmill Road between Mattock Close and the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre access.
  • The retention of approx. 4 on-street parking bays on the eastern side of Windmill Road between Margaret Road and Gathorne Road.
  • The provision of approx. 9 on-street parking bays on the eastern side of Windmill Road between Gathorne Road and Rock Edge.
  • 1.5m advisory cycle lanes on both sides of the entire length of Windmill Road, which widen to 1.8m where on-street parking is provided.

These proposals result in the loss of approx. 18 parking bays on Windmill Road.

Other proposals for Headley Way and Windmill Road, which were consulted on in February and March 2016, remain unchanged and will be decided at a Cabinet Members Decisions meeting on 9th June.
