Woodstock Road resurfacing and improvements work progress update
Work is progressing on the current resurfacing project on Woodstock Road.
Around £650,000 will be spent completely resurfacing the 300m stretch of road as well as carrying out drainage improvements and kerbing and footway work.
The new road surface will bring benefits to motorists while the bus lane, which is also being resurfaced, will ensure buses and cyclists can travel along it without diverting to avoid failing areas of road surface.
We are currently using four-way temporary traffic lights to control traffic on Woodstock Road, Moreton Road and Bainton Road. These are being manually controlled to reduce delays as far as possible.
This phase of traffic management will remain in place until Friday 25 May. Beech Croft Road is currently closed at the junction with Woodstock Road, diversion is via Moreton Road and Banbury Road and vice versa. This will also remain in place until Friday 25 May.
After this this there will be three-way temporary signals to control traffic on Woodstock Road and Elizabeth Jennings Way. Oakthorpe Road and Thorncliffe Road will be closed during this phase, diversions will be in place via Beech Croft Road and Banbury Road and vice versa.
The first phase of work was completed one day ahead of programme and this included the installation of two new gullies and associated pipework, kerb replacement and realignment, tactile paving improvements and footway resurfacing.
The next phase started today and here the works include kerb replacement and realignment, tactile paving improvements and kerb drain installation.
