Notice of Temporary Traffic Order
Witney - A40
Prohibition of Through Traffic and Waiting and Temporary Speed Restriction to 20 MPH
Date of Order: 27 May 2019
Coming into force: 2 June 2019

This Order is being introduced because of routine surface dressing works which are anticipated to start on 2nd June, 2019 up to and including 8th June, 2019.
The effect of the Order is to temporarily prohibit any vehicle proceeding or waiting on the A40 between the slip road for A415 to Bernard Gate and slip road for the unnamed road to South Leigh, Eastbound and Westbound carriageways. A temporary speed limit will also be in action during this notice for 5300 metres between A415 Bernard Gate and unnamed Road South Leigh.
Surface Dressing is a fairly quick, effectively mobile works type operation. As only a short length is being dressed, the disruption should be minimal and hence the effect on South Leigh should also be minimal. For surface dressing, the closure allows for slippage in the programme as it is very weather dependant, therefore in essence the closure will only be for one day, or probably only part of a day, between the 2nd and 8th June and not the whole six days as shown in the notice - the precise date will unfortunately not be known until much nearer the time.
Duration:7 days:
Visit 1: 1 shift (expected 02/06/19 only)
Visit 2: 1 shift (expected 08/06/19 only)
Speed restriction: 7 days (expected 02/06/19) from National Speed Limit to 20 MPH
Time:Visit 1 (surface dressing): Anytime (weekend only)
Visit 2 (post sweeping): Night (2000-0600)
Appropriate traffic signs will be displayed to indicate when the measures are in force.
Exemptions are included for police, fire and ambulance services and for the works and for access to premises which are only accessible from the closed section of road.
The alternative route for traffic affected by the closure is via
A415 – A4095 – A44 – A40

This Order will remain in force for a maximum period of 18 months or until the works have been completed whichever is the sooner.
