Botley Road, which has been closed under the rail bridge since April 2023, will not now reopen in October as planned. Oxfordshire County Council is extremely frustrated that Network Rail is postponing the replacement of Botley railway bridge at the end of this month and is unable to reopen Botley Road in October as a result. The council is in discussion with Network Rail to understand the implications of this.
