Following the acquisition of a grant from Central Government, Oxfordshire County Council is in the process of assessing key signal controlled junctions in Oxfordshire with a view to upgrading the mode of operation from the existing Vehicle Actuated system to MOVA (Microprocessor Optimised Vehicle Actuation).
The junction of the A4260/B4100 in Adderbury (by the Primary School) has been selected for upgrading.
MOVA operation offers reduced delays to traffic and increases capacity (typical average improvement of 13%). For MOVA operation to be implemented, it will be necessary to extend the existing network of ducts and chambers in the footway and verge to enable new traffic signal detector loops to be installed in the carriageway (see drawing attached).
This work will need to be carried out during off-peak periods during the week and will require the use of temporary signals incorporating controlled crossing points for pedestrians. OCC anticipates the work will be starting on 19 February 2018 and last approximately 3 weeks.
