Oxfordshire Roads Action Alliance (ORAA) is a community alliance and campaign group to prevent unsuitable road development in Oxfordshire. The Alliance was set up in 2022. It is opposing Oxfordshire County Council’s (OCC’s) plans to build new roads that could transform the rural character of South Oxfordshire, initially the HIF1 road and the Watlington relief road.
The HIF1 proposal is for a 9 mile major road from the A34 at Milton to the Oxford Road (B4015) north of Clifton Hampden.
The HIF1 scheme is financially very risky and too costly. It also runs against OCC’s own policies on transport and on climate change. This unnecessary scheme will generate 288,000 tonnes of CO2 plus a further 23,000 tonnes annually from traffic emissions. A massive viaduct and a new bridge over The Thames will cause further damage to our countryside.
A public consultation on the Watlington relief road ran from 20th February to 20th March 2023. A planning application is expected in late November.
Please make your voice heard against unsustainable road building. ORAA relies on voluntary donations to support communities safeguarding the future of our countryside by demanding sustainable transport solutions. You can also sign the petition opposing HIF1 and share updates from ORAA’s website with your friends.
