New bus turn around for Woodstock services
Work is now complete on a public transport facility in Woodstock.
The new turning area to the north of Woodstock at the junction of the A44 and Stratford Lane allows buses to terminate, turn and layover outside the town centre and provides an alternative to other locations such as Vermont Drive.
This ensures bus services can serve Old Woodstock, and add flexibility and reliability into the timetabling of bus services for bus operators and provide an improved service for residents.
The work took six weeks to complete and cost £34,000 which was paid for by developer funding held by Oxfordshire County Council and a direct contribution from Stagecoach in Oxfordshire.
