Residents and stakeholders can view and respond to the planning application on the Planning Register, under reference R3.0151/21.

‘The planning application submission is a key milestone in the delivery of the wider A40 improvements programme’, says Oxfordshire County Council. ‘The planning application covers three schemes: 

  • A40 dual carriageway extension A scheme to upgrade the A40 between east of Witney to the Eynsham park and ride site into a dual carriageway.   
  • A40 integrated bus lanes A four-mile eastbound and westbound bus priority corridor along the A40, with improved routes and crossing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.  
  • A40 Duke’s Cut A new eastbound bus lane and improved cycling and pedestrian facilities linking together the A40 integrated bus lanes with north Oxford.’ 

For Eynsham residents, key features include ‘Construction of a new signalised junction to the Eynsham Park and Ride site; New pedestrian/ cyclist underpass at Cuckoo Lane; Alterations to existing junctions and property accesses along the A40; Controlled crossings, external lighting, noise barriers, sustainable drainage systems, landscaping, habitat creation including ecology ponds and associated hibernacula’... The list is goes on!
