A40 Programme 11 Apr 2021 OCC update on the current highway surveys

A series of site surveys from the A40 Shores Green junction to the Dukes Cut area has begun, to inform the design for the HIF2 Smart Corridor and Access to Witney (Shores Green) projects. The survey team is undertaking...

  • Ground investigation
  • Trial holes for utilities
  • Utility detection surveys
  • Highway surface water drainage condition inspections
  • Pavement condition surveys

These works within the highway will be undertaken under temporary traffic management, generally off peak during the week across the course of April and May.

WEEKENDS: There will be a need for some Sunday working - currently programmed to start on 11 April and be complete by Sunday 2 May.

NIGHT CLOSURES: Where access is difficult around major junctions there will be a need for works at night under closures, to ensure that the surveys can be undertaken safely, whilst keeping disruption to a minimum. These closures will be undertaken during April.

If you have any queries or concerns about this work, please email a40corridor@oxfordshire.gov.uk and a member of the team will respond.

CONTEXT / BACKGROUND: A40 long-term strategy
