The Energy link and impacts on travel in the Headington area

Estates Services have been engaged in discussions with the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH Trust) regarding their Energy Link project in order to understand, prepare for and seek to minimise the impact on the University’s operations in Headington.  Whilst the need for and desirability of the project is understood, disruption to commuting, business travel and site deliveries to Old Road Campus, Churchill Hospital, the Warneford Hospital and to a lesser extent the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and the JR Hospital will be significant when the works take place during 2017.  This is likely to include a 3 week partial closure of Old Road and an 8 week complete closure of Churchill Drive.  The University has become aware of an opportunity for Staff to found out more and raise concerns about the OUH Trust’s plans at their consultation event on 18th May, full details are provided in the invitation below.


Construction activity for the nursery is now completed.  provides information for University staff members on nursery and child care facilities and further information on the proposals for the new Headington Nursery provision.
