EMERGENCY roadworks in Botley Road will be starting tonight.

Workers from Thames Water will begin digging up the road at Binsey Lane from 9pm tonight.

Temporary traffic lights will be in place while the work is carried out over the next three nights as the eastbound carriageway will be closed.

Work will take place between 9pm and 6am each night.

In August, Botley Road was reduced to one lane of traffic for emergency works by Thames Water near Osney Bridge and earlier this month Queen Street was also closed to all traffic for similar works.
