Work on the next phase of the Access to Headington transport improvement scheme will start soon.
The next phase will focus on The Slade, between Old Road and the mini roundabout at the junction of Hollow Way/Horspath Driftway.
Contractors working for the county council will set up the site from Monday 10 April with construction work set to start on Tuesday 18 April. Setting up the compounds will be done off-peak to reduce any impact on traffic and so that noise and disruption whilst units are installed and operated can be kept to a minimum.
This section of work will take approximately 26 weeks to complete. The team will do all they can to minimise delays but people travelling in the area are advised to plan their journeys.
Better facilities for employment, health and education
Access to Headington is a major transport improvement project which will specifically aims to improve access to major employment, health and education sites in the area.
This phase will provide off-road cycle lanes, side road entry treatments and improved crossing facilities on both sides of the road. More information on the work can be found at www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/accessheadington
