Water Eaton toucan crossing

Client:   Oxfordshire County Council

Project: Installation of a Toucan crossing to service Oxford Parkway Rail Station

Department: Highways & Engineering

Date of completion: September 2017

Budget: £160k

Client

Oxfordshire County Council is the county council, or upper-tier local authority, for the non-metropolitan county of Oxfordshire.

Requirement

Oxford Parkway railway station is located at Water Eaton, Oxfordshire.  The junction to the railway station on a major arterial road into the city was dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists and it was decided to install a toucan crossing. Due to the significant traffic on this stretch of road, works needed to be completed during off peak hours and to a tight timescale.

Solution

Works were completed by Oxford Direct Services’ team of highly skilled and trained operatives during off-peak hours to reduce the amount of disruption to road users.

Results

The installation of the toucan crossing was completed within the expected time frame to a high standard and with minimum disruption to road users.
