Motorists travelling through Oxford over the next week face road closures

And one of them is expected to cause moderate delays – with motorists facing a wait of between 10 and 30 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that one closure already in place is expected to carry on this week:

• A34, from 8pm March 27 to 6am March 28, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A34 northbound, Botley, slip road and lane closures for maintenance works.

• A34, from 8pm April 3 to 6am April 4, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A34 northbound, Botley to Peartree, Lane closures for signage repairs.

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.

Earlier this month, we reported how the A420 was set to receive safety improvements through the Safer Roads Fund.

Dr Suzy Charman, executive director of the Road Safety Foundation charity, said: “The Safer Roads Fund is a transformational initiative for road safety and for the local authorities receiving funds.

“It makes it possible for road safety teams across the country to proactively address risk of death and serious injury for all road users on these routes.”

Transport Secretary Mark Harper said: “Britain’s roads are some of the safest in the world, but we are always looking at ways to help keep drivers and all road users safe.

“As part of the Government’s plan to improve roads across the country, we’re providing an extra £38 million so that local councils in England have the support they need to keep everyone safe, while reducing congestion and helping to grow the economy.”
