Traffic Chaos Predicted For Thursday

Traffic Chaos Predicted For Thursday With about 1 to 2 inches of snow on the ground at the time of writing (2am on Thursday), and no sign of it stopping, there is likely to be traffic chaos in a few hours as commuters head into work.

Further heavy snow is predicted to fall in the area on Thursday and Friday before Sunny intervals and heavy rain arrives on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

It is reported that train operators First Great Western and CrossCountry are advising passengers to check what services are running before setting off to stations.

The adverse weather conditions are expected to affect services linking Oxford and Banbury with Leamington Spa, Coventry and Birmingham and First Great Western trains on the Cotswold Line, linking Oxford with Worcestershire and Herefordshire.

We believe that First Great Western has cancelled Thursday's 5.17am Cotswold Line train from Great Malvern to London, which calls at Kingham, Charlbury and Hanborough and is due to depart from Oxford at 6.56am.

For the latest information, see the train operators' websites or call 08457 484950.
