Phase 1 Road Closures
Phase One of the Oxford Street District programme has been addressing safety critical concerns as well as undertaking a range of enabling works in advance of the OSD Strategy since December 2018. Work to date has taken place on sections along the full length of Oxford Street and has included areas of pavement improvements, road patching, street lighting improvements, utility cover and drainage repairs.
In order to undertake this work safely and efficiently, a number of directional closures, where no vehicle access will be allowed, is required to sections of Oxford Street. This is to allow safety and enabling works including bus stop resurfacing, fixing pavements and drainage repairs requiring road excavation.
Diversion routes will be signed to redirect vehicles. Northbound and southbound routes that cross Oxford Street will be maintained during the work wherever possible. Pedestrian access to the street and properties will be provided at all times.
Work will take place between 7am and 6pm Monday to Friday and 7am and 1pm on Saturdays. The road closures will remain in place outside of these times for the full duration of the works.
