Investing in the A40

Welcome to the council's public consultation to debate the options for a longer term solution for the A40.

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. More information on how this will be spent can be found here.

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 finding a long-term strategy to tackle current and projected congestion on the A40. 

This consultation seeks your views on possible options for the long-term strategy including: an A40 bus lane, a guided busway, expanding the road to a dual carriageway, Witney to Oxford train service, and a Witney to Oxford tram.

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

Please read the information provided on this consultation. Your views and opinions matter. Thank you very much for taking the time to respond.

This consultation has now closed and feedback is available.
