MAJOR work at the John Radcliffe Hospital, the temporary closure of a Park and Ride, and an extension of double yellows dominate the latest public notices issued by councils across the county.

In the last week, a variety of notices have been published by councils, impacting residents in different ways.

From traffic orders to planning applications, these notices stretch right across Oxfordshire.

Footpath closure: Oxfordshire County Council issued a notice for a temporary traffic order, which will see a footpath and the Thames Path National Trail northeast of Abbey Meadows, Abingdon temporarily close.

The order came into force on Monday, and is being introduced because of the Science Vale Cycle Network.

Exemptions are included for emergency services and for pedestrian access to premises which are only accessible from the closed section of the footpath.

The notice says appropriate signs will be displayed to indicate when the measures are in force.

The order will remain in force for a maximum period of six months, or until the works are completed.

Works are anticipated to be completed on March 31.

Double yellow extension: The county council is also seeking to extend double yellow lines at a junction.

With construction of a new car park and access to the adjacent playing fields, there are plans to introduce additional double yellows on the western side of St Georges Road, Wallingford.

Double yellow lines are set to be extended by a further 36 metres northwards, to a point 77 metres north of Millington Road.

The restrictions will also replace the current unrestricted parking in the layby, which will be removed as part of the development.

Objections to the proposals may be sent in writing to the county council by February 12.

Cycle path: Oxford City Council has issued a notice for an application for a pedestrian and cycle path in Osney Mead.

Land northeast of the Osney One Building could see the formation of a pedestrian and cycle path with associated landscaping and flood mitigation measures.

Hospital unit demolition: The city council has also issued a notice for an application to demolish a unit at the John Radcliffe Hospital.

The existing Barnes Unit, which hosts the Department of Psychological Medicine, could be knocked down with relocation of the tissue building.

The application also includes plans for the erection of a new Adult Intensive Care Unit (AICU) over five floors, with a replacement link corridor within the AICU to connect to the existing trauma building, across four floors, with the main hospital entrance.
