Surface dressing May 2012 3

Peter Jeffery has kindly obtained an update on the local roadworks taking place next week. The re-surfacing work is likely to be quite disruptive in the evenings and overnight for those travelling in the direction of Thame, Oxford, and the M40 from Haddenham via the A418.

Scotsgrove Hill on the A418 will be closed for road repairs overnight from Monday 2nd December to Friday 6th December, from the Haddenham turning at Scotsgrove to the Bucks/Oxon boundary near Thame. This will include the junction of Aylesbury Road and Thame Road at that location on the A418. The road will be closed to all traffic, except for buses on scheduled routes, each night from 7pm until 6am the next morning.

The suggested diversion for Haddenhamers is not to go to the Scotsgrove junction but to go to the A418 and drive towards Aylesbury as far as the Dinton crossroads, and then turn left onto Cuddington Road to proceed to Cuddington, Chearsley and Long Crendon and thus to Thame.

However, cars could, of course, go to the crossroads on the A418 at Kings Cross just north of Haddenham, go up Dadbrook into Cuddington and join the suggested diversion there. Car drivers' other option might be via Stanbridge Road, Kingsey, onto the A4129 Kingsey Road and thus to the Thame bypass.
