You should allow extra time if travelling by car to the SATA Annual Conference and AGM at the John Radcliffe Hospital Academic Centre owing to extensive road works around Oxford.
The recommended access route is via the A40 Northern Bypass Road and exiting at the B4150 slip roads. JR A&E is clearly signposted in red.
From the East and South East using the M40, A40 and A4074:
The A40 London Road between the Thornhill Park and Ride and the Headington Roundabout, has been reduced to two lanes as the bus lane is now closed. In addition, the slip road onto the A4142 Eastern Bypass Road is closed, so the roundabout may well suffer from extra congestion.
From the South using the A34:
The road works at the Hincksley Hill interchange A34 and A423 has an additional road closure of the A4144 nearby making access to Oxford via the A423 Southern Bypass Road congested owing to continuing reconstruction of the Kennington Roundabout A4144 and A423.
Suggested route is to continue on the A34 northbound for app. 5miles to the A34/A44 Peartree Interchange (Holiday Inn) and turn right into Oxford, following signs for A&E which will take to the John Radcliffe via the A44 then A40 (London direction).
From Swindon using the A420:
Turn left at the Botley Interchange northbound, onto the A34 for app. 2.5 miles to the A34/A44 Peartree Interchange (Holiday Inn) and turn right into Oxford, following signs for A&E which will take to the John Radcliffe via the A44 then A40 (London direction).
