Strategic movements (journeys to work) within South Oxfordshire

Science Vale, Oxfordshire

Strategic masterplan for growth within the South Oxfordshire region

South Oxfordshire is experiencing great pressure for change. Within the science vale area, Didcot is growing, the power station is changing, Harwell is one of many centres for technological excellence and there is a great demand for new housing. With this comes an increasing pressure on the existing infrastructure in the area.

The Science Vale masterplan brings a collective vision together for change in the area as a whole. Our role contributing transport and civil engineering was fundamental in helping form the plan and in establishing the principles needed for inward investment in the area.

The plans infrastructure development strategy is wide ranging and includes major highway works, new bridges over the Great Western railway line, improvements to Didcot station along with much more.
