After several years’ negotiation (and a packed public meeting in 2019), Park & Ride construction finally gets under way on Monday 17 October.
A section of Cuckoo Lane will be closed overnight from 25 October to 7 November, for construction of a temporary site access / egress bell mouth - view details and diversion route.
‘This is one of six major schemes in West Oxfordshire which will deliver a range of sustainable travel improvements along the A40’, says the County Council. ‘The 850-space park and ride, located on the A40 eastbound, will help improve congestion on the A40 and provide regular and reliable public transport services into Oxford.’
Eynsham Parish Council and Witney Town Council have both questioned the choice of site. Any additional provision of bus services will ultimately be a commercial decision.
