GAS LEAK – Emergency closures A34 Southern Bypass Road – from Peartree roundabout to Hinksey interchange

SGN engineers are attending to an emergency gas leak located outside number 89 Southern Bypass Road ((A34) Oxford, OX2 OLI.     The  leak on the 12” main that runs down the southbound side of the bypass.  

Due to the location of the gas main in the road, we will need to close both southbound lanes of the A34 from the Peartree roundabout to the Hinksey interchange.  Northbound will remain open.
