Zebra Crossing

Regular visitors to this website will know that plans are in place to install a zebra crossing on Woodways, between the two schools — it had been hoped that the road workings would have taken place during the half-term holiday, coming up in late May.

However, we have now been notified by Transport for Bucks that the deadlines may have to slip a little.

"This is primarily due to an issue arising from the public consultation, which will impact the Sign-off of the Consultation Decision report, and the subsequent "follow-up" objection period for the public. This is likely to delay the process of formally proceeding with the scheme, ie. Starting Works on site."

"Although the contractors are preparing for mobilisation, we have to wait for the Consultation Decision report approval and clearance time, and therefore the contractors cannot yet be formally awarded with Orders."

"So disappointingly, I have to inform you that we do not yet have a confirmed start date."

Haddenham.net will provide an update as soon as we receive further information.
