St Mary's Centre

The installation of the zebra crossing in Woodways has actually started today, Thursday 16 June. Yesterday the contractors were held up, but there are workers and materials on site in Woodways today. It has been confirmed by Transport for Bucks this morning that the job itself will now start and that on a worst case scenario could continue until July 8 — despite signage yesterday saying that the work would last from 15 to 30 June. However, it is confirmed that strenuous efforts are being made for the work to be completed and Woodways open as normal in good time before the end of June.
The work will be carried out between 9.30 and 3.00, Monday to Friday (to avoid arrival at and departures from the schools on Woodways). There will be traffic lights with alternate one-way working while the work is being carried out. If it is necessary to close the whole of Woodways to all vehicular traffic (such road closure will probably only take place on one, or maybe two, days) the official diversion route is via Stanbridge Road and Churchway.
The 280 bus route will be affected in that while the bus could follow its normal route that is exceedingly unlikely at any stage of the works. Advice from Arriva is that the 280 will be diverted from Woodways and Stanbridge Road, and go along Churchway. The bus will then stop — on both sides of the road — just north of the Banks Road crossroads, and at Rosemary Lane/Rudds Lane and the Post Office. In addition it is thus unlikely that the bus stop in Woodways for Oxford-bound buses will be in use, but if it is it could be relocated temporarily and moved along Woodways and nearer to Aylesbury while work is being done, including work on the new bus shelter.
