In July 2015, Oxfordshire County Council’s cabinet agreed to an infrastructure project for improvements to be made along the A40 from Eynsham to Wolvercote which was largely funded through the Local Growth Fund.  Totalling more than £35 million, this project, in addition to other current and planned projects throughout the A40 corridor, will provide congestion relief in the short to medium term.

However, most importantly, these investments set the stage for a much larger undertaking to tackle congestion in the long term and Oxfordshire County Council is committed to delivering a long-term strategy to tackle current and projected congestion on the A40.

We seek your views on two phases of work:
Phase 1: The detailed design of the proposed A40 Eynsham Park & Ride with Bus Lanes Scheme (this scheme is often referred to as
A40 Science Transit). We aim to have the Park & Ride and bus lane open for use by April 2021 and;
Phase 2: The wider A40 Strategy and the conceptual schemes proposed to complete the package of investment for the A40 corridor up
to 2031.

The phase 2 strategy includes:

  • A40 Dual Carriageway
  • Completing the A40 Westbound Bus Lane
  • A40 Eastbound bus lane over the Duke’s Cut and Wolvercote railway bridges
  • B4044 Community Path from Eynsham to Botley
  • A40 Cycle link to the National Cycle Route 5 on the Oxford Canal Tow Path

All schemes along the A40 will include improving the existing shared paths for walking and cycling.

The information presented here is the same as at the public exhibition events.
