Temporary EMERGENCY Road Closure – Kennington: A4183 Oxford Road (Bagley Wood)

Temporary Traffic Regulation Order – S14 Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984

Temporary EMERGENCY Road Closure – Kennington:

A4183 Oxford Road (Bagley Wood)

(OCC Highways ref T1485)

**please note an amendment to the diversion route to use the A34, in both directions of travel **
In the interests of public safety it will be necessary for Oxfordshire County Council to close the A4183 Oxford Road in Bagley Wood, Kennington to prevent danger to the public following damage to the road after subsidence .
A temporary Notice (below) has been made to implement the temporary closure and will operate immediately until further notice .
Access will not be maintained through the works, however local access will be available depend ing on exactly where the works vehicles are at any time and may need to be negotiated with the contact below as necessary.

A copy of the drawing showing the extent of the closure and also the alternative routes for traffic is attached on the link below.

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 Peter Avis from OCC Highways & Transport on 0845 310 11 11.
