Repairs to road surface on A429 Stratford Road bridge, Moreton In Marsh


The county council is taking action to repair the road surface of a bridge on Stratford Road, helping to keep traffic moving through Moreton In Marsh

Road repairs are being carried out on the railway bridge on Stratford Road and will ensure this area is safe and fit for purpose. The work has been planned for 29th- 31st March to make sure this popular route is in good condition ahead of the busy summer season.

To allow the repair work to be carried out, a 200 metre section of road from the junction of Batsford Road to the junction with Todenham Road will be closed between 9.30am - 3.30pm during this time.

Diversion route: follow A429 north, turn right on to A3400 at Shipton on Stour. Follow A3400 south to Chipping Norton, turn right on to A44 and follow road back to Moreton in Marsh, and vice versa.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood said: “These repair works are an example of the county council’s commitment to making improvements that keep roads safe, as well as benefitting the local economy.”

Cllr Lynden Stowe, county councillor for Campden-Vale said: “The A429 is a major route linking Moreton In Marsh with Stow and Bourton to the south and Warwickshire to the north. It’s vitally important that this work is complete ahead of summer to help local businesses make the most of the upcoming tourist season.”
