Traffic running smoothly through roadworks
Published 15/05/14



DRIVERS have coped well with the closure of the A4130 at Bix for six months of repairs. There have been no reported problems since work on the 2.5km stretch of dual carriageway started on Monday.

Traffic travelling towards Henley is currently being diverted at the Nettlebed roundabout on to the B481 through Rotherfield Greys.

Bix and Assendon parish councillor Sue Bailey-West said: “We have two one-way systems in place at the moment but no one has been moaning and it has been okay so far, touch wood. It all appears to be working well; the traffic knows where to go and the buses have been re-organised but it’s still early days.”

Barbara Lewis, chairwoman of Nettlebed Parish Council, said: “At the moment people seem to be dealing with it. People with cars know how to get round anyway but the biggest problem was always going to be the buses. I’ve put notices on our stops.”

The repairs will be made in three phases. The road will be shut to traffic heading towards Henley for three weeks with a second diversion at Wallingford via the A4074 and A4155. There will then be a 20-week contraflow on the road while repairs are carried out on the dual carriageway. Large vehicles will continue to be diverted via the A4074 and A4155 from Wallingford. The third phase will see the road re-opened on a temporary traffic lights system for seven weeks. The A4130 will not re-open fully until December.

An Oxfordshire County Council spokesman said: “Drivers are obeying the signs and disruption is being kept to a minimum. We would like to thank road users for their patience.”

The 139 bus service from Wallingford to Henley has been replaced by a minibus. The bus stop in Bix has been relocated to outside St James’s Church and the service will now travel from there along White Lane, the B480 and the A4130 at the Fair Mile towards Henley.
