A letter was sent out to Osler Road residents yesterday informing them about up and coming roadworks.
Oxford City Council is to carry out works to reconstruct / resurface the carriageway in Osler Road. This work is to commence on 2nd June 2014 and is expected to take 3 weeks.
The work to be done is to plane off the existing carriageway surface and relay a new macadam surface the full width of the carriageway.
As the work involves all of the carriageway, alternative arrangements must be made for parking of cars. Large and heavy equipment will be in use, and it will not be possible for half of the road to be worked on while cars remain parked on the other side. When work is completed all parking restrictions will reinstated in accordance with the Traffic Order.
A Road Closure has been arranged in order to facilitate the works and to ensure the safety of road workers . This will naturally cause difficulty in access to premises although the footways will be fully accessible throughout the work. If residents have special requirements, they should make themselves known to the foreman of the works. If the work is completed earlier than the 3 week period then the road will be fully re-opened.
If you have any comments on the proposals, require further information, or know of any cars which may not get moved in time please contact David Tidball at the City Council or contact Engineering Services on 0800 227676.
Your councillors are inundated with comments from local residents worried about temporary parking. If you would like copies of the plans please let us know, we are asking the City Council who has received consultation letters and who has not.
Our current information is that
“The parking will be displaced from the London road to the JR but the parking restriction will be lifted for Osler road until the resurfacing works are completed therefore residents will be able to park at the top end layby. After 1 week we should have the base coarse layers down which will mean the residents will be able to gain access to their properties for off road parking in the evenings .
Once the section from London rd. to the JR is completed we will open this section of road up.”
