Drivers unaffected by closure

THE closure of part of Greys Road in Henley continued to cause few problems for drivers this week.

THE closure of part of Greys Road in Henley continued to cause few problems for drivers this week.

There was very little congestion caused by the second week of roadworks as Southern Gas Networks upgrades a mains pipe.

Greys Road has been shut at the junction with Duke Street and the work is expected to take 10 weeks.

A diversion is in place via Deanfield Avenue, Gravel Hill and Market Place and homes and businesses on the affected section of the street still have access. Drivers coming into town from the west can also cut through Greys Road car park.

At some point in the next few weeks, Greys Road will also be closed at its junction with Deanfield Avenue and the yellow lines near Milton Close could be extended temporarily when this happens.



David Nimmo Smith, Oxfordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways, said: “There have been no problems and they are working to programme.

“People may have noticed that the traffic lights in Greys Road are permanently on red, which allows traffic to whizz through on Reading Road.

“The traffic seems quite light on Greys Road at the moment. Normally if you’re there at about 8.30am there is quite a lot of traffic but that’s gone, so I would think that people are finding different ways to get around town.”
