A40 Vegetation Clearance & Road Surveys

Oxfordshire County Council will be conducting a short period of work along the A40 on a short section of the road just to the west of the Wolvercote roundabout. The work is being conducted as part of plans to improve the A40.

The work will involve some vegetation clearance along with engineering surveys over a three-week period beginning this month. A temporary lane closure (at night) will be required in compliance with Oxfordshire County Council Highway regulations.

Some of the surveys are to be carried out at night under two-way traffic lights to minimise the impact on traffic, but no road closures are required. Any road users in the area from 20.00-05.00 over a period of seven days (w/c 24th February) may experience short delays due to temporary traffic lights. Any work during the day will be off the carriageway and confined to foot ways, cycle paths and verges.

The dates of the work will be:

W/c 17th Feb days– Vegetation clearance and survey work. No impact to traffic. Pedestrian marshals will be overseeing the footpaths to escort pedestrians and cyclists safely past the works.

W/c 17th Feb nights – Survey work. No impact to traffic.

W/c 24th Feb days- Vegetation clearance and survey work. No impact to traffic. Pedestrian marshals will be overseeing the footpaths to escort pedestrians and cyclists safely past the works.

W/c 24th Feb nights – 2-way traffic lights on A40 and lane closures on A40 and around Wolvercote roundabout but travel in all directions will remain open.

W/c 2nd March – Survey work. No impact to traffic.

The schedules above have been designed to keep the road and path open to the public as normal as far as possible.

Oxfordshire County Council apologises for the inconvenience that may be caused during the work. The schedules above have been designed to keep the area open to business as usual as far as possible.
