Construction work began this week at the junction of Barton Village Road and Fettiplace Road to create a new access junction to Barton Park off Barton Village Road.
Barton Park is a new residential development to the north east of Oxford led by Barton Oxford LLP, a partnership between Oxford City Council and property company Grosvenor Britain & Ireland. The development will provide up to 885 new homes, 40 per cent of which will be “affordable” although the price for a three-bedroomed property has been given as £595,000.
Construction of the first 237 homes in Phase One of the development is already underway.
The project, which includes drainage, services and some landscape modifications, will take up to six weeks to complete. Local residents have been informed of the works and told to expect minor traffic restrictions during construction as well as the use of temporary three-way traffic signals. However, the disruption will be limited to Barton Village Road and Fettiplace Road.
CA Blackwell Contracts Ltd, who are responsible for delivering the infrastructure works for the Barton Park development, will notify residents of any temporary re-routing of traffic to accommodate the construction work.
Philip Koen, CA Blackwell Contracts Ltd’s Project Manager at Barton Park, said:
We’re advising motorists to use extra caution when driving through the area. Pedestrian access and public rights of way will be maintained during construction, and works are scheduled to take place between 7:30am and 6pm from Monday to Friday. However, some work may need to take place outside of these hours, but this work will be coordinated with Oxford City Council and notice will be provided to residents.
