Roadworks that will close a Banburyshire village road for 16 days begin next Monday after a month’s delay.

The roadworks on Astrop Road, King’s Sutton were due to begin on May 13 but had to be put off because a diversion road to Aynho was itself closed for several weeks.

The closure now takes place from Monday, June 10 – Wednesday, June 26. Contractors will be installing a traffic calming system along Astrop Road which leads from King’s Sutton to Charlton.
