Timetable of road improvements below
Road improvement works at Green Road roundabout area:
: Westbound bus lane closed between ThornhillMonday 13th October until Sunday 6th December Park & Ride and London Road by MacDonalds. Bus stops at Thornhill and Risinghurst still open but entrance/exit to Risinghurst at Collingwood Road closed. Speed restrictions down to 50mph on A40 from Wheatley slip road to Thornhill, then 30mph to Risinghurst. Delays expected!
Monday 13th October until Sunday 9th November – the northern side of London Road between Northfield Road and Green Road roundabout will be widened, bus lane closed eastbound and buss top at Green Road roundabout e/b will be closed.
Monday 10th November until 6th December and 5th January 2015 until 28th January 2015 – the southern side of London Road from Green Road roundabout to Gladstone Road will be widened and the bus stop closed at Green Road roundabout.
Monday 7th December until 5th January 2015 – work suspended and bus lanes re-opened but the left hand turn lane into the eastern by-pass that avoids the traffic lights remains closed so still delays. Bus stops at Green Road roundabout remain closed.
6th January until 26th January – bus lane again closed with bus stops kept open. Delays expected.
“January” – re-surfacing of the area at night from 20:00 until 03:00. Temporary traffic lights will be used for the resurfacing on London Road.
As a result of all this by the end of January 2015, the bus lane from Thornhill will go right up to the traffic lights at Green Road roundabout. After the roundabout there will be 4 lanes in London Road – one for buses in each direction and one for other vehicles, removing delays and tailbacks caused by vehicles queuing up behind buses stopped at the Green Road roundabout Oxford-bound stop, thereby improving our timekeeping.
Road maintenance work in Headington – London Road from Northfield Road to Wharton Road:
From 5th January 2015 until early May 2015 – complete re-construction of the bus lanes in London Road and resurfacing of the whole road. Due to continual subsidence of the bus lanes, these will be dug out to a depth of two foot and new foundations put in to prevent a re-occurrence. Concrete will not be used to avoid cracking and the lanes then resurfaced with tarmac.
