Statement - Botley Road
Bev Hindle, Oxfordshire County Council's Strategic Director Communities, said:
"We apologise for the delays this morning. The Traffic Control Centre alerted the travelling public to the delay via BBC Travel at 7am and the reason for the delay.
"Thames Water did repair the leak last night, however, the reinstatement of the surface took place at around 8am this morning, at which time our officer was on site. The lights have remained in position to allow the repair to 'go off' properly before allowing the traffic to run on the surface. They are now removed.
"We do take these traffic issues seriously and do what we can to alert the public. As with all urgent works we make every effort to accommodate repairs and minimise disruption."
