Station road junction closure

Just wanted to let everyone know that although the road closure at station road is diverting all traffic down the unmade new road, it is only the junction of station road and Crowsley road that is actually closed. The utility workers on New Road, are having difficulty working on their problem due to the current unprecedented road traffic, as most of Shiplake traffic is currently trying to navigate the potholes of New Road.  I expect there will shortly be a few punctures too.

The diversion should have ceased and I have asked to be consulted about alternative arrangements.

An OCC Highways Officer is on his way to inspect the situation.

Unless it is an emergency, I should have been notified about this in advance, which did not happen.

I am investigating the matter.

The road closure is until 15:30 on Friday 3rd May.

Ok, have just spoken to Oxfordshire Co Co and it seems that the road closure is only supposed to be in operation between the hours of 9:30 and 15:30. That was clearly not the case this morning as Station road was closed at 8:50 when I tried to access it. Wonder how the school coach is going to cope at 15:30, if BT do not adhere to the correct hours.
