First published in News

A public consultation on plans for a major overhaul of the Wolvercote and Cutteslowe roundabouts has ended.

Oxfordshire County Council has proposed to widen the approaches to the Wolvercote junction and install traffic lights.

The authority also said it wants to make Cutteslowe roundabout the city’s fourth ‘hamburger’-style junction, with the main carriageway cutting through a central island.

Both sites will gain cyclist and pedestrian crossings.

The online consultation on the £9m scheme ended yesterday. There were two public exhibitions in July.

A county council spokesman said if the plans were approved, work could start next summer and last six or seven months.

A hamburger is not the best solution at this junction. It's a flat junction with four arms and plenty of room for a fully-signalled scheme where the right turns don't conflict and each flow only has to wait at one set of lights.

What is proposed will mean right turns do conflict, and traffic going up and down the Banbury Rd will have to wait at two sets of lights. Traffic turning right will have to wait at three!!

"Six or seven months" ??

It's not a very big roundabout. How can it take that long? Maybe if the construction went on for more than four hours per day it would be done more quickly.

Too right! THey really have to slap down objections from whingey residents and work sixteen hours a day, seven days a week. Things would take weeks rather than months then.

Why have Oxford County Council got an obsession with these "hamburger" roundabouts, there's months of disruption when they're being constructed, and there's no improvement to traffic flow once they're finished....
