BBC Oxford are reporting that the proposals to improve the Station Lane / Ducklington Lane junction has been approved by the County Council at last nights cabinet meeting.
The proposal was not to create a roundabout as was previously the case, but to install new traffic lights, filter lanes and road improvements.
The proposal involves
- Having three lanes on the approach to the junction on all arms
- Having two exit lanes, merging down to one lane on all arms except Thorney Leys which would have one exit lane
- Two northbound lanes on Ducklington Lane between the roundabout to the south of the A40 and the Station Lane junction
- Improved pedestrian facilities across Station Lane
The County Council has the £2M required from past developments in the area providing s106 funds for this kind of traffic improvement work.
Work is expected to start at the County Council’s “earliest opportunity”, however this is likely to be in the spring of 2014.
