Under Temporary Traffic Regulation Order – S14 Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 the following temporary road closures have been scheduled at:
1) West Hagbourne, Chilton and Upton – Hagbourne Hill and Chilton Road
Chilton Road, Upton between its junctions with the A417 and unnamed road (Hagbourne Hill) link between Chilton and the A417; and The unnamed road (Hagbourne Hill) link between Chilton and the A417 between its junctions with the A417 and the A4185 Newbury Road/ Lower Road/A34 slip-road. The diversion is via the A4185 Newbury Road, Rowstock, A417 Reading Road/London Road and vice versa.
2) Steventon and East Hendred – Featherbed Lane
Featherbed Lane between its junctions with the A417 Reading Road (east of Rowstock) and the A4130 Abingdon Road with diversion via the A417, A4130 Abingdon Road and vice versa.
In the interests of public safety it will be necessary for Oxfordshire County Council to close the above detailed roads to facilitate carriageway maintenance, resurfacing and drainage works.
Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders (TTRO) are being made to implement these temporary closures and both will operate from Monday 26th January 2015 for approximately two months.
The maximum duration of a TTRO on a road is 18 months, or until completion of the works, whichever is the earlier.
Notice of intention to make the Orders will be published in the local press.
Access will be maintained for emergency service vehicles and also overnight access for those frontages 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.
Copies of the drawings showing the extent of the closure and also the alternative routes for traffic for both sets of works can be found here:
