  • Uncategorized Comments Off on SAPPHIRE 280: MAJOR EVENING ROAD CLOSURE IN HEADINGTON

    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.

  • Uncategorized Comments Off on RE: SAPPHIRE 280: ROAD CLOSURES IN THE AREA OF THE PLAIN, OXFORD

    The main works have now been completed but there will be minor finishing works to be done from 1930 each night, Monday to Thursday next week and some delays could result but no road closures.

  • Castle Street in Oxford will be closed for two Sundays, 12th & 19th April between 0800 and 1500 for overhead crane working.

    Buses on service 280 towards Oxford Rail Station will need to divert after Speedwell Street vis Thames Street, Oxpens Road, Hollybush Row, Frideswide Square and into the Rail Station.
    Buses towards Aylesbury are not affected.
    Journeys from first bus until the 1330 ex Aylesbury will need to divert

  • Due to a procession and service, Princes Risborough High Street will be closed on Good Friday, 3rd April from 1045 until 1215.

    Service 300 will be required to divert via New Road and use the “part time” bus stops.

    Journeys affected are the 1100 ex High Wycombe [duty 705] and the 1105 ex Aylesbury [duty 703].

  • In order to complete the current works being undertaken in the vicinity of The Plain in Oxford City Centre, various roads will be closed “overnight” for re-surfacing.

    The details are as follows:-

    From 19:30 through to 05:30 the following morning – evening of Tuesday 7th April to morning of Saturday 11th April.

    Buses towards Oxford Rail station divert from St.Clements via Dawson Street, LEFT into Cowley Road, right into Circus Street, Right into Iffley Road and straight ahead onto The Plain and as normal.

    Buses towards Aylesbury from The Plain roundabout via Iffley Road, left into Temple Street, right into Cowley Road , left into Jeune Street and right into St.Clements and as normal.

    Temporary traffic lights will control single line working through The Plain.

    From 19:30 through to 05:30 the following morning – evening of Monday 13th April to morning of Friday 17th April.

    No diversion for the 280 but again The Plain will be single line working controlled by temporary traffic lights so there will be delays.  

    Note – overnight resurfacing at Headington will take place in late April/early May and London Road will be closed for a week or so – major diversion for the 280. Further details nearer the time.

    Also two Sunday closures of Castle Street coming up – details after Easter.

  • The only road works I have been notified about for this weekend is temporary traffic lights to control single line working in Oxford High Street on Sunday 22nd Marchfrom “off peak for about 5 hours duration” so presumably starting around 0800 – 0900 and until lunchtime? This will be in the vicinity of the pedestrian crossing between our Turl Street stop and the Queens Lane bus stops.

     

    Then from Monday 23rd March there will be temporary traffic lights controlling single line working at the junction of Norfolk Street and Castle Street in Oxford City Centre, so only affecting journeys towards Oxford Rail Station. These will last for an estimated 6 weeks until 29th April. Being bus only roads the delays should not be very much
