Ed was very pleased to open the Harwell Relief Road today. The £8m Harwell Link, which will run from the B4493 to the A417, is the latest in a package of transport improvements from the Science Vale Transport Strategy to be built and aims to improve access to the Enterprise Zone and reduce local congestion.
It is part of strategy to provide a route from housing development west of Didcot at Great Western Park and Valley Park to Harwell Oxford Campus and support delivery of planned housing growth.
The project aims to:
- increase the capacity of the local road network
- relieve Harwell village of through traffic by 250 trips per hour
- provide greater route choice
- relieve congestion elsewhere on the network.
