A34 motorists face second 68-mile road closure detour

Motorists face a second 68-mile detour on a major A-road between Berkshire and Oxfordshire over the weekend while bridge maintenance works are completed.

The northbound A34 will be closed from 22:00 GMT until 06:00 on Monday between Junction 13 of the M4 and Junction 9 of the M40.

It closed southbound last weekend when work on College Farm Bridge began.

The Highways Agency said the diversion will add a minimum of an hour to journeys.

During the closure, traffic will be diverted via the M4, A404(M), A404 and M40. Non-motorway traffic will be diverted via the A4 and A338.

The Highways Agency said drivers were "strongly advised" to plan and leave extra time for their journeys, while the resurfacing and waterproofing work was finished.
