Drayton and Redbridge waste centres revert to pre-lockdown traffic arrangements

Motorists are being advised of slight changes to traffic arrangements at two of Oxfordshire’s household waste recycling centres (HWRCs).

The traffic management just outside of Drayton HWRC and Redbridge HWRC will be altered on June 10 and June 11 respectively. Cars will no longer be accessing site via the golf course at Drayton or the Park and Ride at Redbridge. They will revert to the to the normal pre-lockdown arrangements of accessing sites directly. All other HWRCs continue to be able to accessed directly from the highway.

The county council is passing on its thanks to residents for following guidance since the sites reopened in May. The changes are being made because the visitor numbers are now regularly able to be contained on site

It is likely that there still be may be queues at times and visitors to the sites continue to be asked to respect other site users and neighbours by driving and queuing responsibly and not blocking the highway.

Social distancing should still be respected and only one person should be outside of a vehicle unless an item is heavy and requires two people to lift it. Visitors are also reminded to maintain a 2m distance from other site users and site staff

Other restrictions remain in force – staff cannot help unload vehicles, contactless payments only are being taken and trailers and hire vans are not able to be brought to site. All policies remain under review and will be adjusted when possible.
