Our approach

National Highways has a methodical, organised and proven process for developing roads which all our projects follow

Our approach

Working with stakeholders icon Working with stakeholders

Working with the local community and their representatives is integral to our work and a key part of how we develop projects.

We have engaged with stakeholders and key partners, whose knowledge and experience of the A34 has informed our work.

Protecting the environment icon Protecting the environment

Oxford and many of the surrounding areas are of environmental value, and we know how important these are to communities and stakeholders. We have a good understanding and appreciation of these key environmental considerations.

Protecting the environment and the places people think are important has been central to our work.

We work closely with environmental bodies to seek their input and find solutions. Identifying potential options that have the least impact and avoid, minimise, or mitigate any potential impact on the natural environment, is a key focus.

Supporting the region Supporting the region

The A34 supports people and businesses locally. It is a key commuter route between the towns and cities along its length. It is also used by businesses to send goods and services around the country – and to bring goods and services to communities.

The area is a popular place to live and work and continues to attract businesses and people, keen to be part of its success.

We have taken this into account in our work to improve congestion on the A34.

Consultation icon Consultation

Consultation is an important part of our project development process.

Should this project progress to consultation in the future, we will share potential improvement options with you, and ask for any comments, ideas, or questions you might have.

We will also keep you updated via this website. You can register below to receive notifications.
