“They were grateful for the assistance of traffic management who closed lane one so the work could be completed safely.

“Next Sunday the work will continue, and the team will be litter picking the verge between the Kidlington slip road and the M40 junction nine.

If you need to report litter, fly-tipping and more you can quickly do so via the Cherwell District Council website and the information will go straight to the team.
