The county council is now asking for the views of residents and roads users in two new online exhibitions on the plans opening at 12 noon on 10 May until 30 May.
The delivery of infrastructure is key to supporting sustainable development in Witney, Eynsham and related new developments in West Oxfordshire. Since Oxfordshire County Council secured funding from the £102 million Housing Infrastructure Fund 2 (HIF 2) in 2019, it has been working on designs, surveys, stakeholder engagement and land acquisition.
The council is investing in six major schemes, which will deliver:
- a new park and ride
- an extension of the dual carriageway around Witney
- new bus lanes and junction improvements.
Recognising advice from government on COVID-19 safety, it is not possible to hold a public drop-in exhibition on the plans. Instead, the council is holding online engagement sessions to present the proposals and provide an opportunity for residents to ask questions and offer comments.
Members of the project team will be online to answer questions about the scheme using a series of online live chat events. These will take place on:
- 17 May about the A40 smart corridor
- 18 May about access to Witney
- Saturday 22 May covering both schemes.
People who cannot visit the webpage will still be able to share their thoughts and questions during this time. A printed summary of the exhibition material is available for those with limited access to the web.
The exhibitions will be open from 12 noon on Monday 10 May to 23:59 30 May.
