Find out more about major transport improvements for Wolvercote and Cutteslowe roundabouts
The scheme was announced as part of the Oxford and Oxfordshire City Deal in January 2014, and forms a key part of the county council’s ‘Connecting Oxfordshire’ transport vision to help deal with existing transport challenges and future growth pressures.
County Councillor David Nimmo Smith, Cabinet member for transport, said: “Wolvercote and Cutteslowe junctions suffer from congestion on all the approaches, but particularly the A40.
“Oxfordshire is thriving. As a result, the county’s population is growing and bringing some big transport challenges. If Oxfordshire is to continue to prosper, we need to think about transport creatively and consider every option.
“As well as the congestion, there are concerns with poor pedestrian and cycle access and environmental issues such as noise and air pollution from traffic.
“Planned housing and employment growth in Oxford and elsewhere will present challenges which these proposals aim to address.
“These proposals aim to reduce journey times through the two junctions, while avoiding negative impacts on the A34, improve safety for all road users, but particularly pedestrians and cyclists, and improve the urban environment by reducing traffic noise and emissions.”
