B4437 Forest Road River Bridge (Charlbury) Proposed Weight Limit

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to make the existing temporary 7.5t structural weight limit restriction permanent. The proposals will ensure the longevity of the bridge, pending consideration of structural works as part of a program of improvements to various bridges within the County - specifically it is proposed to:

  • introduce a permanent 7.5t structural weight limit - on the B4437 Forest Road River Bridge, i.e. the part of Forest Road that is carried by the river bridge structure.

Objections to the proposals and other representations, specifying the grounds on which they are made, may be sent in by completing the online questionnaire, via email or in writing (quoting ref: ADK/12.6.156) to the address below by 29 November 2019. The Council will consider objections and representations received in response and they may be disseminated widely for these purposes and made available to the public.

Any unresolved objections will be reported to the Council’s Cabinet meeting later in 2019 or early in 2020. The papers for the meeting will be available on the County Council’s website about a week before the meeting.
