Botley Road closure April 2023

February 23, 2024

On Tuesday 11th April 2023 road works began on the Botley Road railway bridge. Until the end of October ’23 vehicles will not be able to drive under the bridge. There will be a pedestrian walkway on the right hand side of the bridge, when travelling from Osney/Botley to Oxford, which goes through a not very high tunnel. Obviously on your left hand side when travelling from Frideswide Sq/Oxford to Osney/ Botley and beyond.

When travelling by bus from Botley in the direction of Oxford, passengers will have to leave the bus at Osney Island bus stop and walk to Frideswide Sq. Retain any bus ticket you have purchased to show to the driver of a bus going into Oxford. The Oxford buses will leave from the forecourt of the Railway Station. The return journey from Oxford and the Rail Station, walk on the left hand side of the road from Frideswide Sq to the bus stop outside St Frideswide Chuch, Osney Island.
