We have now received clarification from Bucks County Council regarding the re-surfacing work due to take place on Woodways.
Local motorists will be well aware of the dreadful condition of the road surface on Woodways. Those waiting for a bus in one of the shelters along that road will also have experienced the deep puddles in the road after rainfall, leaving commuters vulnerable to a soaking from passing traffic.
The re-surfacing of Woodways was originally scheduled to take place during September 2013, but this didn't happen.
At long last, improvements now seem to be imminent.
From Wednesday 26th until Friday 28th March there will be off-peak daytime working to repair kerbs. This will mean single-carriage closures during the daytime, using temporary traffic lights.
Re-surfacing work will commence on Monday 31st March, and may not be completed until Monday 7th April — but will not include weekend working. The roadworks will require overnight road closure between the Churchway mini-roundabout and the Stanbridge Road junction.
The most obvious diversion will be via Willis Road. Drivers are reminded that this residential road often has a significant amount of roadside vehicle parking by local residents, and care should be taken to respect the speed limit even late at night.
An alternative route would be to travel north on Churchway or Stanbridge Road (towards Cuddington) and return south via Stanbridge Road or Churchway respectively.
