A4142 Headington - Heyford Hill
The A4142 Ring Road

The A4142 is the eastern part of the Oxford Ring Road from the A40 to the A4074, running past the east and south sides of Oxford.

From the Headington Roundabout on the eastern side of town, the road heads south and crosses a set of lights. Until recently this was the only section of the ring road without a central barrier, but a fatal accident caused a concrete barrier and reduced speed limit to be put in place here. There are two more sets of traffic lights, the second one seeing the start of a short parallel road serving the BMW plant - and signed as such.

Things get impressive now as the road rises to have a grade-separated junction with the B480, shortly before having a roundabout with the A4158. There's a low bridge putting height restrictions on the inside lanes and the road then ends at a roundabout with the A4074, a Sainsbury's supermarket and a short stub of the A423, which continues the Oxford Ring Road west to the A34.
