Hornton Lane To Be Closed from September 30th – October 14th

Hornton Lane to be closed from Monday September 30th thru Monday October 14th

Oxfordshire County Council have arranged the closure of this road in order to deal with the badger sett undermining the road. Although the closure is from 30 September until 14 October it is likely to be reopened as soon as the work is completed.

The works taking place are between Glebe Farm and the Millers Lane junction into Hornton.  OCC will be arranging for appropriate signage to be erected, including a diversion to avoid the works.

Road Repairs on Wroxton Lane 24 -27 July

Drainage work and carriageway patching on Wroxton Lane is programmed by Oxfordshire county council from July 24 for 3 days.

The plan is to install a new offlet and larger diameter pipe to outfall into the stream opposite Horley Mill, and resurface the rough bits of road and re-profile around the gullys opposite Brook House to hopefully avoid water ponding issues.

The existing offlet opposite Horley Mill will be moved slightly towards the bridge, and the pipe trench hand dug because of the services to align the pipe through the gate so it doesn’t kink as now.
