Here is the latest information about some forthcoming road closures, courtesy of Christina Jeffery, Bucks Herald correspondent for Haddenham.

In Banks Road, also referred to as Fort End/Spicers Yard by BCC, the road is to be closed on Sunday 4th September, between 10am and 1pm — but not in Fort End itself. The work is being carried out by Thames Water for 'carriageway re-instatement'. This work has already been postponed twice.

The work in Crabtree Road and High Street by SGN installing reinforced gas mains was scheduled to last about three weeks, from 8th August. As local resident will know, sections of the roads have been completely closed from time to time. the work in Crabtree Road was due to have been completed yesterday, Wednesday 31st August. The work in High Street should be completed by Monday 12th September.

Roadworks in Gibson Lane (resurfacing), and in Willis Road and also in Franklin Road (plane and patch), are due to be carried out in the next couple of months. We will update you with specific dates when we know them.

Resurfacing on the A418 in the Haddenham area, and in Thame Road and Banks Road, between Churchway and Station Road, have been rescheduled to be done in October/November. Road closure will be overnight only, from 7.30pm to 6am.

A new electricity supply (five days maximum) is to be installed in Gibson Lane, behind 2 Church End (formerly the Red Lion), but not until October.
