Emergency overnight closure of Oxford Road

I have just received an email informing me of the emergency overnight closure of the Oxford Road.  Details as follows:

The urgent closure has been requested of Oxford Road, Reading, in a westbound direction only, between Bedford Road and Prospect Street. It has been requested by Thames Water to carry out urgent water mains repairs.  You may have noticed markings on the road and surface water, I know I have when walking home from work.


Due to the traffic impact and the shut off of the water mains, it's been agreed that the works will be carried out at night to reduce the impact on all users of this key location. 

The closures will be:

  • 2200hrs on Wednesday 23rd July until 0500hrs on Thursday 24th July to carry out the repairs to two leaking water mains, located outside 167 and 203 Oxford Road. 
  • They will return at 2200hrs on Thursday 24th July until 0500hrs on Friday 25th July to carry out a permanent reinstatement. 
  • The road will be reopened outside of these times.
