EXTENSIVE roadworks could cause traffic chaos on the Banbury Road for more than three months.

Gas mains replacement works are set to begin on Monday, January 28, and are expected to be completed on Friday, May 3.

During this time, the road's bus and cycle lanes will be closed heading into the city centre between Upland Park Road and Grove Street.

The road will also shut between the junctions of Hobson Road and Summerhill Road for up to three weeks from mid-March.

These roads and Middle Way, all residential streets, will be used as a diversion.
