Oxfordshire County Council is to undertake “carriageway maintenance”, drainage improvements and new road markings on Horsefair and the High Street over the summer.
The works are due to start on 5 August, take around three weeks, and so end by 2 September.
They affect the A44 Horsefair, from its junction with Banbury Road/London Road, leading into the High Street up to the junction with New Street and West Street. In other words, the main route through the centre of Chippy.
Signs are already in place in neighbouring towns, warning of the works, but it’s worth keeping an eye on the County Council’s travel information site here.
We’ll add more information here as we get it, but remember – the road may be closed to vehicles over August, but the town’s shops will still be open and accessible, even if you have to find a different way to get to them…
