HarBUG has submitted a proposal for naming Science Vale cycle routes. We first put forward the idea of naming routes after famous Oxford scientists for the Oxfordshire Local Transport Plan in 2009. We have revised this with updated routes and new planned infrastructure e.g. the Science Bridge in Didcot and new A34 bridge at Milton Heights.

The routes are all named after Oxford Scientists with a surname beginning with the letter ‘H’. This gives the names a second common theme and the Scientists most people can name are the ones chosen.
