Plans for major road improvements on the A34 at Lodge Hill are now available to view and comment on at a virtual exhibition.
The aim of the improvements is to increase junction capacity, providing new access, and shortening journey times. The work will include new roundabouts to improve traffic flow and reduce local congestion. It will also support new housing development and economic growth in north Abingdon and in the wider area. Traffic calming for nearby local roads is also being proposed to limit the number of vehicles travelling on country roads.
It is expected that the proposals will also reduce congestion in Abingdon and at the Marcham interchange as many vehicles will no longer need to travel through the town centre.
Members of the project team will be online to answer questions about the scheme using a live chat function. These sessions will be held from 2pm-3.30pm on Monday 15th March, and 7pm-8.30pm on Thursday 18th March. Any questions that can’t be answered straight away will be replied to within 24 hours.
The exhibition will be open until Monday 29th March and can be accessed here: https://a34lodgehill.exhibition.app/
