Wantage – Campus New Cycle Path

Update 2nd September – Please click here for the HarBUG response to Icknield Way Access Restrictions: HarBUG Response

Details of the consultation and maps can be found here: Icknield Way Access Restrictions (closes 13th September)

Don’t forget the Oxfordshire Cycle Survey 2019 consultation (closes 6th September).


As part of the new Wantage – Harwell Campus new cycle route, the County Council are proposing that on a section of the new route, motorised vehicles are prohibited.

The section in question is the Icknield Way from Newbury Road (from East Hendred) down to Ginge Brook Bridge and across to where it connects with the track to Ardington.

Details of the consultation and maps can be found here: Icknield Way Access Restrictions (closes 13th September)

The proposal for the new path is that this section is re-built with a compacted Limestone surface. We know from other routes in the area that this is fine to cycle on but is damaged by motorised vehicles use. Farm vehicles will still have access but recreational use will be banned e.g. motocross, 4 x 4 use.

Please respond to this consultation with your support as in a previous informal consultation there were many objections to the proposal. Please also don’t forget the Oxfordshire Cycle Survey 2019 consultation (closes 6th September)

    Please respond to this consultation as we expect objections to the proposal by motor vehicle off road groups (4x4s and trail riders).
    The consultation ends on Friday 13th September.

    Also don’t forget the Oxfordshire cycling survey which closes this Friday (6th September).
