A KENNINGTON road is to remain closed every day until the end of the week for resurfacing works.

The Avenue was closed yesterday on the first day of the five-day scheme.

The work will see the section, from the roundabout with Kennington Road to the roundabout with St Swithun’s Road, shut from 9.30am to 7.30pm each day.

Oxfordshire County Council spokesman Martin Crabtree said a diversion was in place.

He said: “They have been timed for Easter when there is less traffic on the roads.”
