You have closed the A34 at the said location but your division sign is diverting traffic into Oxford causing absolute chaos down the botley road what with the rail station bridge being closed. Why don’t you close the A34 northbound at Hinksey hill? your sending traffic down to botley only for them to come back to follow the diversion A34 both directions gridlock
Thank you for your report concerning a diversion route.
We have passed your report on to the relevant department who will investigate your concerns and have found that we could not close the A34 northbound at Hinksey hill, if we had done this, it would have caused an additional 4 diversion routes (2 in each direction). We apologise for the inconveniece and delay this may have caused you. In the future could you please report issues such as this to our Customer Contact Centre as this reporting tool is designed for defects such as a broken sign or barrier, litter, overgrown vegetation or potholes.
