Headington Headlines #296

Your weekly round-up of local news for 12 – 18 December.

The Hospitals Trust has published the schedule of heatpipe roadworks for Lime Walk covering the period 3 January to the end of February. The contractors didn’t quite meet their first target though – both sets of roadworks have over-run into this week, but we’re assured all will be finished by next Friday, probably before. Then it all starts again in the New Year.

All my posts about the project are under the ‘Energy Project’ tab in the main menu, and there’s a page of links and contact details here.

A driver captured this dashcam footage of a van driving the wrong way on the A40 dual carriageway. The video starts at the Thornhill P&R lights, heading east and ending at the layby before the Forest Hill turn.

Planning approval has been given for Nielsen House to be converted to “30 x 1-bed flats and 63 x 2-bed flats”.
