Temporary Road Traffic Order – S14 Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984
Temporary Road Closure – Wardington / Williamscot – Road Closures affecting Top and Lower Dawkins

In the interests of public safety it will be necessary for Oxfordshire County Council to close two separate sections of road around Top and Lower Dawkins to the north of Chacombe to facilitate structural carriageway patching works.

A Temporary Traffic Regulation Order is being made to implement the temporary closure and will operate from 2 July 2012 for up to approximately 12 days in total (for the two sections). The second stage is likely to start on 9 July. (The maximum duration of such a temporary closure will be 18 months or until completion of the works whichever is the earlier.)

Notice of intention to make the Order will be published in the local press.

Access will be maintained for emergency service vehicles and also overnight access for those residents within the closure areas, 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.

Copies of the drawings showing the extent of the closures and also the alternative routes for traffic are attached.

Please note that road closures are generally signed from junction to junction. This is to deter drivers from driving right up to the closure points and then having to reverse or make tight turns. We are, though, very aware that drivers often ignore signage, both permanent and temporary, and increasingly they just follow their Satnavs!

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