Roadworks and closures on Northcourt Road

The work on upgrading the gas distribution network around Abingdon has now reached Northcourt Road. Through access along the whole of Northcourt Road is likely to be blocked between 25 November 2019 and March 2020, probably with respite over the Christmas - New Year period. Where closure details are known, these will be noted on each Illustrated Talk detail page.
