Local Conservative County Councillor Eddie Reeves has praised the “major improvement” for Oxford Road after Oxfordshire County Council’s highways team completed an eight-week maintenance programme costing £830,000.
The works included resurfacing between the A361 Bloxham Road and Farmfield Road junctions, kerb and footway repairs, and drainage improvements.
Eddie continued: “Oxford Road is south Banbury’s main arterial route. These extensive works will make a noticeable difference to the journeys of all of us locally making them safer and smoother. I am conscious that other roads within the Calthorpe area also require attention, particularly Bankside and the neighbouring closes, and am continuing to push for the inclusion to the Council’s maintenance programme.”
