Four New Major Road Schemes in Didcot Garden Town Area

In this year’s Spring budget statement, Philip Hammond announced that Oxfordshire County Council and the supporting district councils were successful in a bid for funding for transport improvements in and around Didcot. The funding will support the creation of new houses and jobs in the area, further supporting Milton Park’s 2040 Vision plans.

The projects which will be supported by this funding include:

  • A4130 widening from A34 Milton Interchange towards Didcot
  • A new “Science Bridge” over the A4130, Great Western Railway Line and Milton road into the former Didcot A Power Station site
  • A new Culham to Didcot river crossing between A415 and A4130
  • A Clifton Hamden Bypass

This funding announcement will mean that necessary infrastructure improvements are delivered in parallel with new homes and jobs, ensuring the long-term economic success in South Oxfordshire.

Furthermore, all schemes include improved segregated walking and cycling routes which enhances travel choices for everyone.

Launch of Milton Park Bike User Group

The Milton Park Bike User Group has been re-introduced! An informal group of Milton Park employees who cycle to work or regularly use the local cycle network in and around Milton Park.

The group’s first meeting is to be held on Wednesday 24th April at 12.30pm with Veronica Reynolds and guest speaker from OCC – Patrick Lingwood (Local Walking & Cycling Implementation Plan officer).

If you are interested in joining this group, please contact Veronica Reynolds on veronica.reynolds@miltonpark.com.


Safety Barriers

You may have noticed some safety barriers up around the Park, especially towards the Western End and off the main road. These were put in place during the peak leaving times to address the issue of speeding cars through car park areas to try and “beat traffic” along Park Drive. This only results in more congestion on Park Drive itself because everyone has to give way to the right. The safety barrier trials were successful and as a result, we will be implementing a more permanent solution.

From the beginning of April, barriers will be installed at points between buildings 55 & 60 and 57 & 58. The barriers will be closed from 4pm - 6.30pm each evening.  If you require access to these areas between those times, you will need to use the call button to request access from our Security team.

Once these barriers are in place, we will also be trialling a few alternative barrier options and locations (ahead of settling on a permanent barrier) to prevent the car park area in front of building 97 being used as a short cut to Jubilee Avenue.  This is designated as a ‘no through road’, but unfortunately this is ignored by many motorists and speeding cars through 97 are creating a hazard for pedestrians and cyclists in that area.

A quick reminder: the speed limit on the Park’s roads is currently 30mph and within car parks it is 10mph. Our Security Team have been instructed to report any speeding or dangerous driving and action will be taken against repeat offenders.  We are delighted that more and more people are choosing to cycle to Milton Park and our growing community means that there are more pedestrians than ever walking between the buildings and crossing the roads from bus stops.  Please look out for cyclists and pedestrians and make sure that you leave enough space and reduce your speed when passing them on our roads.
