We are in the early stages of this project. Our work is focused on better understanding the current demands on the A34 between the M4 and M40, and the opportunities to reduce congestion and improve safety.


The Oxford area plays a key role in providing connections east and west, as well as north and south.

The A34 supports people and businesses and is a key commuter route. It's 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. By looking at ways to reduce congestion and improve safety, we can provide road users with better experiences of the A34.

Project focus

The government has asked us to explore opportunities to reduce congestion on the A34 between the M4 and M40.

Our immediate focus is understanding how the A34 and the local roads interact so that we can explore potential improvements.

We are working with stakeholders and key partners so that their knowledge and experience of the A34 can inform our work.

With this information we will identify options for improving the A34 that could make a real difference to people’s lives
