Rymers Lane roadworks due to start

Published: Monday, 14th October 2019

From 21 October 2019 Oxford Direct Services (ODS), working on behalf of Oxford City Council, will start to install speed reduction measures in the Rymers Lane area to make the roads safer.

The work is expected to take two weeks and will also see new drainage and new kerbs installed, as well as tactile slabs to help sight-impaired pedestrians.

From 21 to 26 October the junction of Cornwallis Road and Rymers Lane will be closed. There will be three-way traffic lights to manage the traffic at the Littlehay and Rymers Lane junction. 

From 28 to 31 October the junction of Littlehay Road and Rymers Lane will be closed with traffic lights controlling the flow of traffic at the Cornwallis Road and Rymers Lane junction.

From 1 November the Rhymers Lane, Littlehay Road, Cornwallis Road junction will be closed. 

"We realise that road works of this nature will cause disruption for road users but the benefits once the work is done will be plain to see. We have planned this work around the school holidays to minimise disruption and contacted all residents and schools in the area to make them aware of the work." 

Cllr Nigel Chapman, Cabinet Member for Safer Communities and Customer Focused Services.
