The A34 southbound was 'partially blocked with queueing traffic due to a crash' which involves multiple vehicles on the A34 southbound from Kidlington Junction to A44 Woodstock Road.

Traffic was heavily blocking the road throughout the day due to weekend roadworks being carried out by SGN Gas to 'reinstate the road and complete the project'. 

Both lanes of the A34 southbound carriageway near Botley have been closed over the weekend, starting from 9pm yesterday (Friday, March 22)  until 5am on Monday, March 25.
