Surface dressing May 2012 3

Transport for Buckinghamshire (Bucks County Council) has announced road re-surfacing work in areas close to Haddenham, commencing Monday 15th July. The closest roads affected are:

  • A4010 Aylesbury Road, Little Kimble- Estimated Length 1860m, Estimated works cost £85,000
  • A418 Oxford Road, Stone- Estimated Length 1610m, Estimated works cost £115,000
  • A4129 Longwick Road, Longwick- Estimated Length 1033m, Estimated works cost £115,000
  • A418 Aylesbury Road, Rowsham- Estimated Length 1393m, Estimated works cost £110,000

This is a rolling programme of works, so dates of working on each site will depend on progress on the previous site.

Surface dressing is usually carried out during the daytime as it is a weather and temperature dependent process. However, with the current hot weather conditions forecast for this week, it will not be possible to carry out these surface dressing works during the day. To deliver the current programme on time, TfB will be carrying out the works during the cooler evening and overnight hours. Should weather conditions change, the programme will revert back to daytime working.

There is a bedding-in process that needs to take place following the surface dressing treatment being laid, which means that interim temporary speed limits will be in place. TfB urges drivers to respect these speed limits to prevent the spray of loose chippings prior to the road surface being swept after the bedding-in period. This process usually takes between 2-4 weeks.
