Headington Headlines #313

Your weekly round-up of local news for 10 – 16 April.

As the heatpipe works on the London Road continue, we learn that the finishing touches to the road surfaces in Highfield will mean more road closures – albeit brief – in early May. The work is to re-lay sections of tactile paving and to reinstate the road surface on a section of All Saints Road which Vital Energi say they are “not happy” with. For full details follow this link.

All my posts about the project are under the ‘Energy Project’ tab in the main menu, and there’s a page of links and contact details here.

It all happens between 11.30 and 13.30.
