Residents will have noticed that work has started on the traffic calming build-out on Didcot Road, despite the fact that the public consultation on the feature does not close until 17th February.
The Parish Council has received the following statement from Aaron Morton, Oxfordshire County Council’s engineer overseeing the works: “I am unsure as to why the traffic calming/build-out works have commenced whilst the consultation period is still ongoing. I can confirm I have sent an email to Vanderbilt stating that the works are to be stopped and the highway is to be returned to its existing state immediately, to which Vanderbilt have confirmed. ”
“I also stated that Vanderbilt’s contractors are NOT permitted to carry out any further works on this S278 until the agreement has been signed and sealed and until the conclusion of the consultation for the build-out has been reached.”
