COMMUTERS face delays and queues this week due to roadworks on the A40.

Traffic has queued between Cassington and Wolvercote in both directions.

The delays are caused by roadworks being carried out by Oxfordshire County Council just west of Oxford.

There is also congestion on Witney East (B4022) due to tail-backs from the A40.

Signs on the road at Witney East say roadworks will take place each evening this week until March 7. Stagecoach Oxford buses may also be delayed, in particular the 11, 18, S1 and S2 services.

The county council was unable to offer any further information.
