We have been sent the following text of the temporary traffic order which takes effect from 2nd October. We have requested that Bickerton Road is considered as well as Stapleton Road as an alternative diversion route to Old Road for traffic from Lime Walk with support from the Chair of Highfield Residents’ Association.
This Order is a continuation of the Notice that came into force on the 11 September 2017 to cover the full duration of the works. There are no changes to the restrictions.
In the interests of public safety it will be necessary for Oxfordshire County Council to temporality introduce the following to facilitate carriageway works:
- No access into Old Road from Lime Walk (no access at the junction). Access maintained one-way for vehicles travelling northwards into Lime Walk from Old Road.
- Parking Prohibited for 40 metres from Old Road on the west side (includes approx. 5 spaces of the 8am – 6:30pm 2hour parking bays).
A Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) is being made to implement the temporary restrictions and will operate from the 2 October 2017 till the 13 January 2018.
(The maximum duration of a TTRO on a road is 18 months and on a footpath is 6 months, or until completion of the works, whichever is the earlier.)
Notice of intention to make the Order will be published in the local press.
Here are the two documents pertaining to this notice.
