Cuckoo Lane, Headington

In 2007 Feltham Contractors widened Cuckoo Lane westwards from Woodlands Road by removing the big grass verge on the north side. This is to make a temporary route for contractors’ vehicles to building works (a new sports hall) at Rye St Antony School (planning application 06/02436/FUL).
