Oxfordshire County Council is consulting on initiatives that will be put forward as part of a Government bid for funding under the Housing Infrastructure Fund. and local people are being given the chance to give their views.
There is significant housing and employment growth for Didcot and the area through the Vale of White Horse and South Oxfordshire district council local plans. However, the road network in the area already suffers from congestion and without action there will be unacceptable levels of traffic seeking to use this already constrained transport system.
In order to increase capacity the county council has drawn up options that could include:
- A4130 Capacity Improvement – dualling of the A4130 between the A34 and new Science Bridge, including new and improved pedestrian and cycling measures
- Science Bridge – a new road link from the new dualled section of the A4130 back to the A4130 at Purchas Road, including pedestrian and cycling infrastructure
- Culham River Crossing – a new road between Culham near the science centre to Didcot’s A4130 perimeter road, including pedestrian and cycling infrastructure
- Clifton Hampden Bypass – a new road between the A415 Abingdon Road at the science centre and B4105 Oxford Road north of the village
There will be two public exhibitions where you can find out more and give feedback on the proposals:
