Improving transport for Didcot and the surrounding area

This consultation puts a spotlight on Oxfordshire County Council’s proposed package of strategic transport improvements for Didcot and the surrounding area to support this planned growth. It sets out how we want to improve travel for residents, communities and business - and to improve the transport network in the area, which we know already suffers from congestion.

This consultation focuses on a package of strategic improvements that could include:

  • A4130 Capacity Improvement – dualling of the A4130 between the A34 and new Science Bridge, including new and improved pedestrian and cycling measures.
  • Science Bridge – A new road link from the new dualled section of the A4130, over the railway, back to the A4130 at Purchas Road, including pedestrian and cycling infrastructure.
  • Culham to Didcot River Crossing – a new road between Culham near the Science Centre to Didcot’s A4130 perimeter road, including pedestrian and cycling infrastructure.
  • Clifton Hampden Bypass - a new road between the A415, Abingdon Road, at the Culham Science Centre and B4015, Oxford Road, north of Clifton Hampden village

We need your views on this package of transport improvements, so that we can bid for funding opportunities from government as they arise such as from the Housing Infrastructure Fund.
