HIGHWAY IMPROVEMENT WORKS – WENDLEBURY ROAD
Smith Construction have been engaged to carry out the ‘Section 278‘ highway improvement works associated with the Catalyst Development. These works include construction of a new roundabout at the junction of Charles Shouler Way with Wendlebury Road along with associated cycle and footways, street lighting and signage (please see attached drawings).
To date construction of the new roundabout has progressed ‘off–line‘ in order to minimise disruption to through traffic. However to enable us to complete construction of the ‘tie–in’ as quickly and safely as possible we need to close Charles Shouler Way temporarily. To this end a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) has been made to operate from 19 July 2021 up to and including 17 September 2021.
During this period you will still be able to travel in each direction along Wendlebury Road, via the partly constructed roundabout.
The diversion route associated with the closure of Charles Shouler Way is shown on the attached drawings and will be as follows:
To get from Wendlebury into Bicester there will be a short diversion north along Wendlebury Road to the Garden Centre where you will join the A41 southbound down to the roundabout (A41 / Charles Shouler Way / Vendee Drive) and then north along the A41 to Bicester as normal. Please see attached sketch which hopefully clarifies this route.
To get back from Bicester to Wendlebury the journey will be south along the A41 and join Wendlebury Road at the Garden Centre.
Traffic coming north along the A41 from the M40 will continue along the A41 to the roundabout junction with the B4030 Pringle Drive (Burger King), then south along the A41 and into Wendlebury Road as above.
The diversion will be signed as appropriate and agreed with O.C.C.
We thank you for your patience and apologise for any inconvenience during these roadworks.

Dear Wendlebury Residents,
THE GREAT WOLF RESULTS
It is now clear that the only way forward is for a judicial review but following Barry Wood’s contacts with Victoria Prentis it is clear that such reviews will only be permitted if certain criteria are met, the chief of which is any flaws in the process of the Inquiry, Barry assures me, for what it is worth, that he has David Peckford, Head of Planning and the legal team working on this as a priority. At our end it will be helpful if you can identify and deficiencies in the process itself. My personal view is that the role of OCC in this Inquiry left a lot to be desired over both consultation and content but you will understand this better than me.
I hope that you see this as a way of keeping you fully updated now that this is in the political dimension
