z
The next phase of work on Access to Headington will be along Headley Way and Cherwell Drive. Work is currently expected to begin on Monday 26 June and will take approximately 9 months to complete.
 
We will be holding a public exhibition on Monday 5 June at Northway Community Centre, Dora Carr Close, Headington, OX3 9RF between 2pm and 6pm. There will be an opportunity to meet Oxfordshire County Council representatives, the contractor and the designer to ask them questions and raise any concerns you may have.

Update on the Slade

 
Work is progressing well along The Slade and we have nearly completed phase 1.
 
Over the last six weeks the team have removed the existing kerbs and constructed a new off-carriageway cycle lane to provide a safer route for cyclists.

On Friday 2 June, the team will begin surfacing the new cycle lane, footway and carriageway which will take approximately four days to complete (excluding the weekend). This work will be done during normal working hours and should cause little disruption to the travelling public.
 
Work has already begun on part of phase 2 of The Slade and this will continue for the next 2 months. The work will be similar to that of Phase 1, replacing existing drainage, removing white lines, constructing an off-carriageway cycle lane and surfacing.
