Commuters on the A40 faced severe delays while emergency repairs were carried out on the Cassington traffic lights yesterday.

Temporary traffic lights installed in Eynsham Road caused long queues in both directions after a collision involving one car in the early hours of Monday.

Congestion occurred on the A40 Eastbound to Witney and on the A40 Westbound to Cutteslowe Roundabout.

The repairs also caused major delays on Stagecoach’s S1, S2, S7, 18 and 19 bus services.

A 29-year-old was arrested and charged with drink-driving and is due to appear at Oxford Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, August 26.
