Opening booklets 27 January 2018
In days gone by, new roads were often celebrated with a grand opening ceremony and the issue of a commemorative booklet heralding the exciting new highway. You'll find some of them here, complete with a glimpse of all that empty tarmac and a healthy dose of modernist optimism.
A40 Wolvercote Roundabout Improvement 3 January 2017
Improvements to the A40/A44 roundabout junction at Wolvercote north-west of Oxford.
