Two major roadworks schemes begin this week on key routes to Aylesbury.
For the next two weeks works will take place under road closures at night, to minimise traffic disruption, on the A41 Aston Clinton Road and the A413 Buckingham Road.
While the dual works will mean there will be two diversions in place at the same time, causing some delays for drivers, the diversions do not overlap at all and have been scheduled to start after 7pm to avoid peak travelling hours.
The A41 Aston Clinton Road works are taking place on a small stretch outside the Holiday Inn, as work finishes on the new junction there. The road will be shut from 7.30pm to 6.00am, Monday to Friday only, until 4th August with an additional overnight closure planned for 7th August.
The work will include highway improvement, a signalised junction, new traffic islands, the planning and re-surfacing of a 500 metre stretch of the A41, and 170 metres from the junction with New Road going south. There will also be some white lining and loop cutting for the signalised junction. Signed diversion routes will be in place, with HGVs from the Tring direction diverted through Wendover, and cars through Weston Turville.
The A413 Buckingham Road carriageway resurfacing will commence tomorrow night (Tuesday 25th July), on an area stretching from the traffic lights by the 'Horse & Jockey' pub up to just beyond Prince Rupert Drive.
The works should take 10 nights to complete, not including any weekend working, but are weather dependant.
Access to Watermead and Oliffe Way will be maintained but will be subject to short delays at times to ensure the safety of the public and crews on site. Footway access will be maintained at all times.
The diversion route is via A4157 Weedon Road, A41 Bicester Road, and Martin Dalby Way.
These works have been delayed by a day due to the overrunning Winslow High Street works which were disrupted by last week's heavy rain.

Scams online and via telephone are increasingly inventive and a serious risk to the unwary. Please help the elderly and vulnerable know how to spot them and avoid becoming a victim. The latest one we've heard about, received this week by an elderly resident of Haddenham, was an attempt to extract banking details over the telephone in order to transfer "a council tax rebate"...
