Backhill Lane tunnel now open
A disused railway tunnel has recently been opened at Milton Park. The tunnel is now a cycle and pedestrian path leading into Milton Park from the A4130. A footpath will lead users to the nearby Milton Gate amenity area where they can also cross the A4130.
The tunnel will cut cycle and walking journey times for those living in Great Western Park and working on Milton Park by up to 7 minutes!
In early 2018 a crossing directly out of the tunnel and across the road will be installed, further reducing journey times.
This iniative has been funded by the Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership and the project was managed by Oxfordshire County Council.
