As part of the government’s investment of £225.5m into vital infrastructure in the south east, the Botley Bypass scheme will go ahead.
The county council’s Executive Member for Environment and Transport Rob Humby said: ‘We were very pleased to hear that the Botley Bypass scheme has been awarded £10m from the government.
‘The bypass has been a long-standing ambition for local residents and the county and district councils and I am very pleased that the significant work that we have put into developing a scheme has now paid off.
He added: ‘It will dramatically improve quality of life in the area by removing through traffic from the village, reducing noise and making a major contribution to improving local air quality.’
