A main road in Bicester town centre is set to close for five days for electric works this month.

The Causeway will be shut in the town to facilitate the installation of a new electric supply.

The works are planned to start on Monday, June 24 with Oxfordshire County Council warning householders and businesses in advance.

The expected completion date of the work is on Friday, June 28, according to correspondence from Oxfordshire County Council.

There will be limited access maintained for emergency service vehicles and for stores within the closed section of the road while the works are carried out.

The suggested alternative route is through Church Street, Kings End, Queens Avenue, B4100 and vice versa.
