A361 Chipping Warden Relief Road 2 September 2019
Construction of a new single two-lane road to replace the existing A361 through the village of Chipping Warden. The new road will diverge from the existing A361 Banbury Road adjacent to Allens Orchard and rejoin it north of the village close to the eastern perimeter of the former airfield.
The relief road will be constructed as part of the preparatory works for the HS2 rail line, which will pass just to the north of the village. One function of the new road will be to keep heavy construction traffic for HS2 out of the village.
