As the Headington roadworks draw to an end, there is the requirement for a total road closure of London Road between Green Road roundabout and Headington Shops.
The closures will be on Monday 27th April, Tuesday 28th April, Wednesday 29th April and Thursday 30th April from 20:00 to 06:00 the following morning to facilitate the carriageway reconstruction between Northfield Road and the roundabout.
Then again on Wednesday 6th May and Thursday 7th May from 20:00 to 06:00 the following morning to facilitate re-surfacing of the whole section of London Road that has been re-constructed.
Journeys affected are, from Aylesbury, the 1920 departing Aylesbury through to last bus [the first morning bus from Thame is due 5 minutes before closure is officially removed but should get through alright]
From Oxford, the 1952 departing Oxford Rail Station through to last bus.
Diversion from Aylesbury is normal route to Green Road roundabout then left onto the Eastern by-pass, then after approximately one mile, turn right at the traffic lights into Horspath Driftway; bear right at the mini-roundabout into The Slade; straight ahead into Windmill Road then at the major crossroads/traffic lights turn left into London Road and back on normal route to serve the buss top at Headington Shops.
Diversion from Oxford Rail Station is normal route up to Headington, observe bus stop BEFORE the junction normally used only by the Park & Ride, turn right at the traffic lights into Windmill Road, straight ahead into The Slade, bear left at the mini-roundabout into Horspath Driftway, left at the traffic lights onto the Eastern By-pass up to Green Road roundabout and turn right back onto the A40 and normal route.
No bus stops to be served on the diversion but drivers to stop coming out of Oxford at the bus stop before the traffic lights at Headington Shops, normally used by just the P&R.
Inevitably, delays will be quite substantial, especially early in the evening.
