Update on Cow Lane and Basil Hill Road

An update from Oxfordshire County Council:

Cow Lane

Given complexity of traffic impact assessment in relation to closure of Cow Lane and the wider impacts of proposal necessitating full consultation, this Active Travel proposal will not meet the government set time-frame requirements for implementation. To this end closure of Cow Lane to motor vehicles will not be pursued through Active Travel initiative. More »

Basil Hill Road

The closure of Basil Hill Road to cars (public transport will be permitted and access to all will be maintained) continues to be explored as part of the Active Travel Initiative programme of works. Should this closure go ahead it will likely be carried out under a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order which does not require formal consultation before it is implemented. » Less
