Backhill Lane Tunnel – preparation works starting

Published on: 25/08/2016

Earlier in the year, Oxfordshire County Council announced that they were planning on starting works to reopen the Backhill Lane tunnel, a tunnel from Milton Park (just outside of the Innovation Centre by the lagoon) to a footpath on the A4130, leading to Milton Gate and the BP garage.

MEPC are working with the council on this project and are starting some preparation works very soon. This will be on the Milton Park side and will involve taking down a number of trees to ensure the entrance to the tunnel is easily accessible to everyone. The small site will be cordoned off and works vehicles in place during this time so please take extra care around this area over the coming weeks.

These trees will be replaced when the landscaping is completed towards the end of the project.

Skanska, the contractors who worked on the Milton Interchange will then start work on reopening the tunnel, this is due to take around 3 months and will start in October, the project is estimated to complete in early 2017.

Download the below diagram to see exactly where the tunnel is and where the works will be taking place.
