This week, contractors have been laying new electric cable and upgrading existing power supplies associated with the new housing development at the site of the former Peking Rendezvous restaurant in High Street.
It is anticipated that the work will be completed today, Friday 15th July and that full vehicular access will be restored.
Some residents living closest to the road works have been unable to access their own drives, despite original assurances by the contractors that this would not be the case.
However, on a lighter note:
It seems that work might have been completed a little earlier than today, had there not been a minor hiccup along the way.
New tarmac re-surfacing should have been carried out on Tuesday not Wednesday, but we understand that the lorry went to the wrong Haddenham — namely the one in Cambridgeshire, some 83 miles away!
Presumably the lorry driver had no sat nav? Or perhaps his "Doris" (the sat nav lady) got a little confused on his behalf?
Either way, we're told that the driver was very embarrassed!
