Featherbed Lane and Steventon lights

Improved and safer access to Milton Park, Milton Interchange and Didcot from Wantage and Grove.

This scheme supports the major growth in both housing and employment planned in the Science Vale area and mitigates the congestion at the Rowstock roundabout junction.

The detailed design for these proposals is now complete following extensive public consultation.

This scheme includes three main sections.

Northern end (Milton Hill) of Featherbed Lane

  • An improved signalised junction at the southern end of Steventon High Street / A4130 Abingdon Road.
  • A new set of traffic lights where Featherbed Lane meets the A4130 Abingdon Road.
  • Additional traffic lanes along the A4130 between these two improved junctions at either end.

Central section of Featherbed Lane

  • Realignment of sharp double bends along Featherbed Lane.

Southern end of Featherbed Lane

  • A new roundabout junction with the A417 Reading Road.
  • Improved surfacing of a section of the A417 Reading Road towards East Hendred.

Key objectives:

  • increase junction capacity at the A417/Featherbed Lane, A4130/Featherbed Lane and A4130/B4017 (Steventon) junctions
  • reduce journey time delay
  • improve journey time reliability
  • improve highway safety

Next steps

We are currently holding discussions with the landowners directly affected by these proposals. Once agreement has been reached either by negotiation or Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO), we may start the implementation of these improvements in complement of the other major highways schemes delivered in that area.
