Cycle to School Signs

New signage is now in place marking the route from Stonesfield to Woodstock for students cycling to The Marlborough School and using the approved route via the Blenheim Estate.

The ‘School Cycle Route’ signs were designed by SAFER. However a big thank you goes to OCC who provided the funding to manufacture the signs. The design went through an approval process with OCC Highways before permission was granted to erect the signs on the highway.

Village Travel Network

SAFER is helping establish the Village Travel Network (VTN) in conjunction with other local communities. Road safety and sustainable travel are at the heart of the VTN project to help link communities together..

Planning for the VTN is now under way and a dedicated project team has been established made up of representatives from Bladon, Combe, Glympton, Hanborough, Stonesfield, Woodstock and Wootton.

The VTN initiative aims to create a network of safer walking, cycling and riding networks that link villages and communities together. Routes in the network will provide safer and more sustainable options for local communities that avoid busy roads, pollution and will enable recreational and well-being benefits.

Currently the team are planning the overall objectives for the project and producing a detailed project plan to deliver the VTN strategy and vision. Further updates will appear on the website and in the Slate as this project gets off the ground.
