Temporary Traffic Regulation Order – S14 Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984
Temporary Road Closure – Witney A40 (B4022 to A415)
A request has been received from Chevron Highways for a temporary overnight road closure to apply to both carriageways of the A40 at Witney, between the A415 and the B4022 junctions, whilst essential overhead power line removal works are carried out.
A temporary Traffic Regulation Order is being made to implement the temporary closure and will operate overnight (22.00 to 06.00) for two nights on 3 and 4 March 2012. (The maximum duration of such a temporary closure is 18 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.
Limited access will be maintained for emergency service vehicles, subject to the progress of the works.
A copy of the drawing showing the extent of the closure and also the alternative routes for traffic is attached.
Please note that road closures are generally signed from junction to junction. This is to deter drivers from driving right up to the closure points and then having to reverse or make tight turns.
