Public engagement exhibitions launched on transport upgrades for the A40 in west Oxfordshire

Residents in the Witney area and users of the nearby A40 are set to benefit from £180 million of major road and infrastructure improvements.

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.

The first exhibition covers the details of the access to Witney road improvement scheme at Shores Green. The second covers the A40 HIF2 smart corridor plans, which include the A40 dual carriageway extension, integrated bus lanes and work at Dukes Cut.

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.

Questions must be submitted in advance and visitors are urged to visit the council’s webpage to check the timings of these live events. Any questions that can’t be answered immediately will be responded to as part of an updated Frequently Asked Questions, so please check back to the webpage for these updates.

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.

For any queries email a40corridor@oxfordshire.gov.uk or call 01865 792422.

New fly-tipping reporting service goes live

The following message is from West Oxfordshire District Council.

Residents will be able to report fly-tips more easily thanks to an improved service from West Oxfordshire District Council.

A new online form will allow the user to pinpoint the fly-tip on an interactive map so they don’t have to spend time trying to describe the location or looking up a postcode.

That makes it is easier for the Council team to locate and with previously reported cases visible, it also means less duplication, allowing a quicker investigation and clean-up.

If a resident calls for more information about their report, the customer services team can give more detailed case information on the spot.

Cllr Norman MacRae, Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: “Fly-tipping is a crime as well as blight on the environment which we take very seriously.

“This system will help us not only clean up fly-tips but track down offenders and ensure they are fined accordingly.”

Residents asked not to contaminate recycling – bin may not be collected

Message from West Oxfordshire District Council

Residents are being urged to avoid contaminating their recycling bins with ordinary waste.

This week a growing number of collections have been mixed with a variety of non-recyclable items such as textiles, food and nappies.

It means the contamination has to be painstakingly removed before being sent off to be incinerated – a process that can cost thousands of pounds.

Cllr Norman MacRae, Cabinet Member for the Environment, said:  “We understand that with most residents at home, more waste is being generated but removing it is a costly and potentially hazardous process, particularly at this time.

“Please ensure your waste is put in the correct bin and store any excess recycling if necessary. If it is contaminated it may not be collected making the situation worse.”

Waste crews are instructed to check bins and leave a tag if they are contaminated asking the resident to re-sort it.

For a reminder of which bins to use see:

Request from Thames Water

There have been blockages in the local sewer system which runs across the ‘Curbridge Triangle’.

Can residents please ensure non-appropriate items are not flushed/washed into the system. In particular wet wipes have been an identified problem.

Please refer to Thames Water website for further information.
