Following intervention from Headington Lib Dem councillors, the following communication has been received from the University.
After meeting the County and discussion with UNO Bus Ltd we have agreed to maintain the service on the current routing for the time being and not to implement a diversion.
We will continue to review the situation and if it does transpire that congestion causes problems with reliability we will again re-examine. However, a diversion by Lime Walk is clearly in no-one’s interest whilst the Heat Pipe works are in operation.
I will contact you in advance if this situation changes and would be happy to meet in due course
This is a welcome move by the University at a time when many residents are beset by roadworks, parking displacement, and temporary road closures.
