DRIVERS will be unable to turn right out of Oxford's Risinghurst estate on to the A4142 Eastern Bypass for up to three weeks from tomorrow, because of roadworks.

The roadworks are part of Oxfordshire County Council’s £40,000 project to improve cycle links between Headington and the Thornhill park-and-ride centre, alongside the A40 at the eastern end of Risinghurst.

And pedestrians will not be able to use the crossing on the bypass during the work.

The right-turn from the estate on to the A40 was permanently closed last year, despite residents’ protests.
