Update on HS2 Precast tunnel segment deliveries

Good news regarding the Sunday morning precast deliveries. Message from EKFB on behalf of HS2 After a period of testing and modifications, we have adapted the way we load and transport the largest precast segments. This method reduces the width of the load, which will mean no additional traffic management will be required. With immediate effect, we will no longer routinely be delivering the precast segments using the Sunday morning lane closures. The widest segments will now arrive mid-week, as part of the regular precast delivery schedule to Chipping Warden Compound. Please note that there are some segments which, due to particular design features, may still require occasional use of a road closure. So this option may need to be

FINAL CALL to action: planning application to build over 160 acres of Banbury farmland

The window for objections is about to close. Please ACT NOW! https://www.banburyguardian.co.uk/news/people/developers-shock-hamlet-with-premature-planning-application-to-build-over-160-acres-of-banbury-farmland-3721654 An application has been lodged with Cherwell District Council for outline planning permission to build industrial estates over 140 acres of ancient pasture on both sides of the A422 off Junction 11 of the M40 motorway. The development would link the new ‘Frontier Park’ warehousing with the M40 in the south, burying farmland once thought to be untouchable. The applicants say the industrial units would total 140,000 square metres and be used for storage and 24-hour distribution. To comment on the application see here https://planningregister.cherwell.gov.uk/Planning/Display/22%2F01488%2FOUT Comments must be made by June 30. A campaign group called Keep Nethercote Rural has set up a petition against the plan and also has a Facebook page
