A34 Botley/ Peatree closed due to accident - recovery work underway

UPDATED 2.15PM - 6 September 2018

Work is continuing to reopen the A34, Oxford, after a crash involving an HGV in the early hours of this morning.

There is currently a full southbound closure from the M40 junction 9 as well as a single lane closure northbound. Traffic congestion remains severe and drivers are advised to avoid the area if at all possible and follow diversions if they have no option but to travel through the area.

Barrier repairs have begun with work being done at the moment to remove the crashed HGV with a view to opening up as many lanes as possible when it is safe to do so.
