H2S Roadworks in NovDec21

Message from HS2 Staff:

As part of our continued preparatory works, it is necessary to create a break from highway on the A418 Oxford Road. These works are expected to take approximately two weeks. There will be temporary traffic management while these works are completed.

This break from highway will allow our construction traffic to cross the A418 from our work areas. There will be a traffic light control system in place which will allow safe interface with the public highway. It will also be necessary to remove some further vegetation around these works.

Works to construct our break from highway will be from Monday, 22 November to Friday 10 December.

We will also have traffic management in place from Monday, 22 November. To reduce disruption as much as possible, traffic management will only be introduced off peak between the hours of 9.30am-3.30pm, Monday to Friday.

In December, we will be carrying out some engineering work forming concrete foundations known as 'piles', this is in advanced of the bridge construction on the A418 realignment.

The piling works are expected to take approximately two to three weeks and will be undertaken during our core working hours, 8.00am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday. Once completed the bridge will take traffic over the HS2 line.

Please see details of the works here:
