Rabbit-damage repairs to road to end next month
12:00pm Monday 2nd September 2013 in News
WORK to repair a busy road near Wallingford damaged by rabbits burrowing beneath it is expected to be finished next month.
It was discovered in April that rabbit burrows beneath the A329 at the junction with Halfpenny Lane, between Moulsford and Cholsey, had caused damage.
The problem emerged after Oxfordshire County Council was asked to repair a crumbling footpath on a 60-metre stretch of road near the junction.
Highways bosses found the road had been damaged as well, with rabbits the likely culprits.
Since February temporary traffic lights have been in place, causing delays for drivers.
Cholsey Parish Council chairman Mark Gray said it was unfortunate that the work had not been done during the summer holidays as planned.
A county council spokesman said eight weeks of work on a 220-metre stretch began on August 15.
