More misery on A34

Witney Gazette: More misery on A34 More misery on A34

MORE road closures are to hit drivers using the A34 over the next two weeks.

The road will be closed overnight at Chilton for vegetation management.

It will be shut on weekdays from 10pm to 6am until Good Friday, April 18, while there will also be occasional daytime closures of the laybys on the northbound carriageway between Chilton and Milton.

Lane closures will be in place on the northbound carriageway between Abingdon and Hinksey Hill from 10pm to 6am on weekdays until Wednesday, April 16.

Road surface repairs at the Pear Tree interchange, north of Oxford, will also force closures tomorrow on the northbound carriageway and on Friday on the southbound carriageway between 10pm and 6am.

As they are overnight then hopefully they won't cause misery - when are they supposed to do repairs? People moan that the roads are in a poor state and then you get sensationalist headlines like this when they are trying to sort them out at the best possible time.

If they are sorting out the massive dip on the A34 Northbound at Peartree then all the better. Hopefully ti will just be a case of diverting people off the road down to teh junction and then back up again on the other side.

'Vegetation management' presumably means grass cutting. I should have thought there were ways to do this without a complete road closure.

Don't forget 'overnight' is when a lot of the HGV's go through. Where do you suppose these will go during that fortnight?
