A quick post for today!
Roadworks at Oxford Circus last night 26 August 2015 – BIG news LOL!! 🙂
Resurfacing of the whole intersection was undertaken. The works began around 21.30pm and full road closures implemented about 22.00pm – save for southbound traffic heading down Regent Street – other than that the usual road diversions were in force (eg via Hanover Square, Bond Street, Wigmore Street etc)

More drilling – this time on the opposite side of the junction. Its pretty obvious this is the first time the junction has been resurfaced since the ‘X’ layout (the ‘X Factor’ crossing) was introduced at Oxford Circus. For more on this see the Guardian and BBC News.
