Botley Road jams misery set to finish
6:00am Monday 20th January 2014 in News
ROADWORKS, above, in Botley Road, Oxford, which led to long tailbacks, are due to finish today.
Scottish and Southern Electric has been digging at the junction with Ferry Hinksey Road to fix a fault which had caused homes to intermittently lose power since late December.
The fault was on an underground cable which was causing a fuse at a nearby sub-station to blow.
An SSE spokesman said the fault had been fixed and the company’s workmen expect to have left the area by the end of today.
Three-way temporary traffic lights had led to long delays around the roadworks.
She said: “The repairs have taken place over the weekend.
“We had to take up to 127 customers off supply just to access the cable but we were re-routing the network so they have not had any further interruptions.
“I would like to thank the residents for their patience and apologise to road users for the inconvenience.”
