Access to Headington - Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) consultation

Project to deliver a package of travel improvements in the Headington area

Access to Headington is a £12.5m package of schemes designed to improve access to major employment, health and education sites in the Headington area. It is also designed to support new housing and jobs in Headington and beyond, without attracting more traffic to the area.

Existing traffic congestion leads to a number of problems, including delay to bus services and an unwelcoming environment for pedestrians and cyclists.


What Access to Headington aims to do

  • Manage growth in car traffic – planning for more walking, cycling and use of public transport
  • Support jobs growth in health, innovation and education by improving access to major sites such as hospitals and universities
  • Improving access to the major employment sites by sustainable modes
  • Promote health and wellbeing by reducing transport’s environmental impact

Access to Headington proposals


What are we consulting on?

Initial consultation on design proposals for Access to Headington was carried out during July and August 2015. Based on the feedback received, and following further work, a number of changes have been made. This subsequent consultation seeks views on the associated Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) and other traffic measures which are required to deliver the Access to Headington transport proposals.


Traffic Regulation Orders

We are seeking views/comments specifically on the proposed Traffic Regulation Orders and other measures which require formal approval before they can be implemented. These cover:

  • Changes to waiting including new parking bays
  • Banned turns at junctions
  • Changes to the direction of traffic flow at the Cherwell Drive service road/shops
  • Pedestrian and cycle crossings
  • Relocation of bus stops
  • Shared cycle and pedestrian paths
  • Mandatory on-road cycle lanes


Please give us your views

Please give us your views on these proposals by filling in our consultation form by the 25 March 2016.  Officers will consider them carefully before recommending a way forward on the scheme. The county council’s Cabinet Member for Environment is due to decide on the proposed TROs on 28 April 2016.

This consultation has now closed.
