As local residents will be aware, Buckinghamshire County Council made an Order, which prohibited vehicles from proceeding, except for access, along the entire length of Gibson Lane for work by Thames Water on 20th and 21st November.
However, it seems that additional road excavation work is now being carried out in Gibson Lane, linked to Electricity supplies and other services. At the time of writing (Monday 25th November) the road therefore remains closed. We will update you as soon as we receive further information.
The alternative route for vehicles affected by the closure will be via The Croft, Crabtree Road, Churchway, Church End, Station Road or Station Road, Churchway, Crabtree Road and The Croft for the reverse route.
Appropriate road closure and diversion signs are lawfully displayed and will continue in force for a period until the works have been completed.
Penalties for not observing these restrictions will be as prescribed by the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and the Road Traffic Act 1991.
Gibson Lane is highlighted on the map in Red. Alternative access routes are shown in Blue.
