Official Statement from CPC dated 10-01-19
Road closure on Thame Road (from Chinnor to Emmington)
Mill Lane (from Station Road junction to Cherry Tree Road)
Following numerous interactions today with both OCC and the contractors.
CPC can now confirm the following (which is correct details at time of typing):
All proposed road works, which were only notified by road signage yesterday (with signage that was incorrect!) has now been CANCELLED.
CPC has stated that not enough notice was given for this long closure, plus a differing of details in all official notices received today was highly confusing for everyone.
CPC can understand that there is much confusion for locals regarding these work which was totally unacceptable.
After discussion with OCC, we can now confirm that these works are postponed to a later date, and will not begin on the 14 January.
We shall confirm new dates when once approved by OCC and CPC are notified. It will be a road closure at some point (be warned!) and this will be for completion of all S278 agreed works, which include the closure of Mill Lane at the junction, and open the new road through the Bloor Development plus installation of the new zebra crossing on Thame Road.
All road signage is now being / been removed to save any more confusion and once new dates agreed it will be back to advise everyone, hopefully with more notice next time.
Thank you so much for your patience in this matter.
CPC will continue to advise of any information as and when we receive it – please be assured we will continue to do all we can for the community given the information we are sent.
All details correct at time of going to print – subject to change if a higher authority deem necessary.Back to News
