A request has been received from Wild Oxfordshire for a temporary Bridleway closure to apply to a section of Bridleway 301/2 whilst essential flood prevention works are carried out.

A temporary Notice is being made to implement the temporary closure and will operate from the 22 October 2018 to and including 26 October 2018

Please note that Notices for urgent works can last up to 5 consecutive days only.

A copy of the drawing showing the extent of the closure and also the alternative routes for traffic is attached HERE.

Further information regarding the works may be obtained by contacting Wild Oxford.

This is good news in that Wild Oxfordshire is trying to improve the footpath to get rid of the exceedingly boggy area around a couple of the gates on this bridleway.
