In the interests of public safety it will be necessary for Oxfordshire County Council to close a short section of the A361 to facilitate carriageway patching and iron works.

A Temporary Traffic Regulation Order is being made to implement the temporary closure and will operate from Monday 17 October 2011.  The estimated duration of the works is 3 days. (The maximum duration of such a temporary closure will be 18 months or until completion of the works whichever is the earlier.)

Very limited access will be maintained for emergency service vehicles and also overnight access for those residents within the closure area, subject to the progress of the works.  Please note that access routes will depend on exactly where the works vehicles are at any time and may need to be negotiated with the gang on site as necessary.

A copy of the drawing showing the extent of the closure is attached. Please note that in order to minimise disruption, these works are being undertaken whilst the A361 is still closed at Chacombe for the Banbury Flood Alleviation works.

Further information regarding the works may be obtained by contacting Simon Marsden, OCC Highways & Transport on 0845 310 11 11
