A main road near Banbury has re-opened four days earlier than expected after major sewer works by Thames Water.

Motorists have been subjected to a series of diversions to accommodate the closure on the A4260 south of the Red Lion pub. The closure was expected to be in force for between ten – 14 days.

Oxford to Banbury bus services were re-routed through the village via Berrycroft Road. The main road closure caused some congestion and an increase in through-traffic in villages such as Bloxham.
