Date of Order: 18 January 2017

 The Closure Area

This Order is being introduced because of a new Zebra crossing installation and associated roadworks which are anticipated to take 4 weeks to complete.


The effect of the Order is twofold:

1.)  is to temporarily prohibit any vehicle waiting in the whole length of Bridge Street;

2.)  for the last two nights only – to close the road to all traffic.

Appropriate traffic signs will be displayed to indicate when the measures are in force.

Exemptions are included for emergency services and for the works and for access to premises which are only accessible from the closed section of road.

The alternative route for traffic is via the B4022 Oxford Hill, A40 to Eynsham, B4449 to the A415 to Ducklington and Witney, Station Lane, Witan Way, High Street and vice versa.

 The Diversion

The relevant part of the Oxfordshire County Council (Various Roads – West Oxfordshire) (Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting and Permitted Parking) Order 2012 (as amended) which permits 30 minute parking shall be suspended for the duration of the works.


This Order will remain in force for a maximum period of 18 months or until the works have been completed whichever is the sooner.
