At the request of Horley Parish Council, Oxfordshire County Council have agreed to install a kerb along the east side of Church Lane, adjacent to the church boundary in order to protect the grass verge from further erosion. Conservation kerbs will be used to match those existing at the Hornton Lane/Church Lane junction. Work is programmed to start on 3 December, and may last for up to two weeks. The road will not be closed, but no parking will be permitted along the section affected during the working day. For more information see the Parish Council Notice Board.
After many years of errosion and damage we now have a kerb to protect the grass verge on upper Wroxton Lane. The repair and widening of the road should also mean that water will flow into the drains and provide a little more space for passing parked cars.
Thank you again Horley Parish Council, what a difference it has made already, Debra
Temporary Road Closure for kerbing work with “no waiting” restriction in Wroxton Lane From Feb 1st for 5 days
The closure is for the week commencing 1 February, and is to permit the County Council to carry out kerbing works along the east side of Wroxton Lane for approximately 70 metres between The Steps and The Old Chapel. Conservation kerbs are to be installed along this length to protect, and prevent further erosion to, the verge. These works are being funded by the Parish Council. The works will not narrow the existing carriageway.
During the work the road will be closed to through traffic, but access be maintained to frontages and for emergency vehicles. No parking will be permitted along the section affected during the works, so any residents who do normally park in this area are asked to park elsewhere.
For more information see the Notice and Plan on Parish Council Notice Board.
NOTE: The Notice refers to Horley path road, which is confusing, but the road it relates to is Wroxton Lane, as shown on the plan.
