Road closures

The following road closures will be in operation during April:

There will also be a road closure in June - details are below:

Oxfordshire County Council have also sent out details of planned works to the A40; further details are below:

A series of site surveys required to inform the design for the HIF2 Smart Corridor and Access to Witney (Shores Green) projects has commenced. Between the A40 Shores Green junction and to the eastern scheme extents in the Dukes Cut area the survey team will be undertaking;

  • Ground investigation

  • Trial holes for utilities

  • Utility detection surveys

  • Highway surface water drainage condition inspections

  • Pavement condition surveys


These works within the highway will be undertaken under temporary traffic management, generally off peak during the week across the course of April and May.


There will be a need for some weekend working on a Sunday. This is currently programmed to start this Sunday 11th April and be complete by Sunday 2nd May.


Where there is difficult access around the likes of major junctions there will be a need for works at night under closures to ensure that the surveys can be undertaken safely, whilst keeping disruption to the A40 to a minimum. These night closures will be undertaken during April.


If you have any queries on these works or wish to report a concern please  email and a member of the team will respond.
