Quaking Bridge (Oxford) Proposed Structural Weight Limit

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to make the following changes on the grounds of preserving the weak bridge and for the safety of all road users:

  • to make permanent* the 7.5 tonne Weight Restriction:
    • Quaking Bridge over Castle Mill Stream between Tidmarsh Lane and St Thomas Street, Oxford.

* The restriction replaces the expired temporary traffic regulation order, and would force heavy vehicles to make full use of the alternative road network within the area.

Objections to the proposals and other representations, specifying the grounds on which they are made, may be sent in writing (quoting ref: CM/12.6.320) to the address below, via email or by completing the online questionnaire by 08 December 2017. 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 in early 2018. The papers for the meeting will be available on the County Council’s website about a week before the meeting.

This consultation has now closed.
