I am so impressed by the Ox Times information service here, up well before dawn each day and going through to midnight. This is true local journalism and is very much appreciated. BBC Oxford hang your heads with shame!

Now that the Botley Rd is open is there any chance they could close the High St so that the buses can start to run a service?

You think closing the High Street, while Abingdon Road, Weirs Lane, and Donnington Bridge Road are still closed is a good idea? I think not

Couldn't agree more. In previous years I have turned to the BBC or even to the county council website. This year the Oxford Mail has been hands down the best source of information. Well done to you all :)

I notice that there is no flood problem at London Docklands. Why isn,t the water flowing away down the Thanes ?

Be prepared for more traffic chaos tomorrow, did the County Council not learn anything last week? If Abingdon Road is closed, the traffic needs to go somewhere, and the High Street is the most sensible route.

It worked last week, while the Botley Rd was still open. It gave bus passengers a fighting chance of getting in and out of the city. They may not matter to you Diligaf but their employers and suppliers might disagree.
