Didcot and Surrounding Area Infrastructure Improvements Update

Oxfordshire County Council is holding an online consultation to update local people on the proposed package of infrastructure improvements in Didcot and surrounding areas. This online consultation shows the latest scheme designs and provides an opportunity for local people to comment on these.

Work on these infrastructure improvements follows the successful funding announcement for £218 million from Government in March 2019 known as the Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF). Although the funding for the transport improvements has been announced, Oxfordshire County Council is currently in the final stages of negotiating the details of the funding agreement with Government. Since the previous public exhibition events in November 2018, Oxfordshire County Council has been working to address previous comments and updating the design work.

The four infrastructure improvement schemes are:

  • A4130 widening from A34 Milton Interchange towards Didcot
  • A new “Science Bridge” over the A4130, Great Western Railway Line and Milton Road into the former Didcot A Power Station site, back to the A4130 near Purchas Road
  • A new Didcot to Culham River Crossing between the A4130 Northern Perimeter Road at Didcot and A415 near Culham Science Centre 
  • A new Clifton Hampden Bypass between A415 near Culham Science Centre and B4015 Oxford Road north of the village.

Have your say

As part of this consultation, public exhibitions were planned across various locations in the local area over the last two weeks in March. Unfortunately, due to the advice from Government with respect to Coronavirus (COVID-19) these have been cancelled. However, residents and businesses can view the plans and submit feedback online until 30 April 2020.

If you know anyone who does not have access to the internet and you think would be interested in this consultation, we would appreciate your help in telling them about it. They can call us on: 07392 318945 or 07833 401067 to discuss the proposals and request printed copies of the consultation materials.
