Diversions
For closures between the Hinksey Hill junction and the Peartree Interchange all traffic will be diverted via the Oxford ring-road.
For closures between the Milton Interchange and Botley Interchange standard traffic will be diverted via the A417, Wantage, A338 and A420 (southbound diversion the same in reverse). Heavy Goods vehicles will be diverted via the A420 between Oxford and Swindon due to unsuitability through Wantage.
