Delays continue at Bix

DRIVERS using the A4130 near Bix are advised to plan their journeys to avoid delays as roadworks move on to the next stage.

Contractors working for Oxfordshire County Council are due to finish resurfacing the dual carriageway section of the road this month.

They will then begin resurfacing and reconstructing the road at tie-in sections at Bix and Fair Mile, Henley.

During the resurfacing of Fair Mile, the B480 Lower Assendon junction will be closed from 9am to 5pm.

Traffic needing to access Lower Assendon will be diverted via the B481 at Nettlebed and B480 and vice-versa.

Both sections will be worked on simultaneously under two-way temporary traffic signals. Width restrictions at Nettlebed and Fair Mile will remain in place during this work.

David Nimmo Smith, the council’s cabinet member for transport, said: “I am pleased to be able to report that work is going well and that everything looks really good on the dual carriageway section.

“The contractors will shortly move on to the next phase and, as with any change on the road, there could be disruption.

“As always, the advice is to plan ahead and possibly vary your journey times to avoid the morning and evening peaks if you can.

“The good news is that once the work is finished people will be able to enjoy a high-quality road for many years to come.”

The £4.5 million resurfacing and improvement scheme is due to be completed in December.
