Unfortunately, some areas of work remain outstanding. To complete this work we will need to close the A34 north and southbound carriageways overnight (between 9pm and 6am) on the following dates:
- Monday 3rd February for 3 nights - closure of the A34 northbound carriageway from the M4 (Chieveley) to the A4130 Milton Interchange
- Thursday 6th February for 3 nights - closure of the A34 northbound carriageway from the A4130 Milton Interchange to the A420 Botley Interchange (this closure also allows for a joint to be replaced within the Botley Flyover)
- Tuesday 11th February for 3 nights - closure of the A34 southbound carriageway from the A4130 Milton Interchange to the M4 (Chieveley)
- Monday 24th February for 2 nights - closure of the A34 southbound carriageway from the A420 Botley Interchange to the A4130 Milton Interchange
For closures between the Milton Interchange and Botley Interchange standard traffic will be diverted via the A417, Wantage, A338 and A420 (southbound diversion the same in reverse).
For closures between the M4/Chieveley and the Milton Interchange standard traffic will be diverted via A4, A338, Wantage and A417 (southbound diversion the same in reverse).
We are very aware that residents along the A417 and Wantage are expecting issues with heavy goods vehicles and we have been in liaison with Oxfordshire County Council with regards to alternative routes.
During closures where the diversion travels via Wantage, we will be signing a secondary diversion for heavy goods vehicles which goes via Swindon and the A420. We hope this will reduce the disruptive impact to Wantage, however please remember that even though an alternative diversion has been provided we cannot prevent HGVs from using the A338 and A417.
Please be aware that this closure is subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances - please check the yellow signs placed in advance alongside the road for confirmation of the closures dates/times.
We would like to apologise in advance for an inconvenience or disruption during our work. If you have any questions or if you'd like to know about work please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0300 123 5000.
