Aylesbury Bicester Road Primary Public Transport Corridor

The Bicester Road is an important element of our Aylesbury Transport Strategy . The main objective of the scheme is to provide facilities that enable buses to travel more freely along the A41, thus reducing journey times and improving journey time reliability. Improved bus journey times will support the new park and ride service at Aylesbury Vale Parkway, existing inter urban and village services into Aylesbury and the high frequency services serving the Berryfields Major Development Area and western Aylesbury. Furthermore, the scheme will also deliver great improvements to facilities for cyclists and pedestrians.
Together these improvements will encourage greater use of public transport, cycling and walking, reducing dependence on the car and supporting our programme of smarter travel choices across the town.
In November 2008 the council submitted a full business case to the Department of Communities and Local Government and the Department for Transport, to support a bid of just over £5 million from the Community Infrastructure Fund. Please click on the attachments below to view the business case in full. The business cases were submitted in 3 volumes:
- Volume 1: Project Summary Information
- Volume 2: Project Appraisal Data
- Volume 3: Supporting Evidence
The Council expects to learn around February/March 2009 if its bid has been successful
