A420 roads get safety treatment
Two locations on a popular road have been made safer by Oxfordshire County Council.
The A420 needed work at Buckland and Pusey and the county council’s engineers decided to do both pieces of work at the same time to minimise disruption.
At Pusey the road was ‘delaminating’ – the top layer peeling off - along the centre line and this had deteriorated over the winter. A total of £260,600 was invested in this repair.
Over in Buckland the high-friction surfacing was failing across the Buckland Crossroads junction and here the repairs cost £123,000.
