Drivers have been subjected to long delays on Tuesday and Wednesday after Thames Water carried out emergency work on the Southern Bypass.
Tim Bearder apologised but said motorists are “part of the problem” if they are not using public transport.
Thames Water said work should be complete by 13:00 BST on Wednesday.
The company said it had been repairing two leaks found in key mains on Monday but work has caused long delays along the Southern Bypass, A34 and Hinksey Hill.
Councillor Bearder, Oxfordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highway management, said the city needs “radical change”.
