Traffic Management in Haddenham

Road Closed Sign 05

As local residents and those travelling into the village for work will be aware, we have some challenges to face in terms of traffic movements in Haddenham due to road works.

Here, thanks to inputs from Pete Summerskill and Peter Jeffery, is a summary of the picture as far as we can ascertain.

Banks Road

SGN is upgrading the gas mains in Banks Road HP17 8EE and Woodways.

It is planned to be carried out between Monday 8th April and Friday 10th May.

The roads will not be closed as was stated on the original roadside notices. It is now understood that four-way traffic lights will be in operation on each stretch of the road as the work progresses westwards, after starting near the Community Junior School in Woodways. The lights will thus affect traffic in Woodways, Churchway, Banks Road and Stokes Croft, and to and from Fort End, at some stage.

280 Bus

The 280 bus will not be diverted, although buses going to Thame and Oxford will not be stopping at the Woodways stop near the Infant School which will be suspended for the duration of the works. The bus stop near the Junior School for buses going to Aylesbury will not be suspended at all.

Alternative bus stops where these are needed are at Fort End/Tacks Lane and near the Medical Centre in Stanbridge Road.

The bus stops and routing on routes 111 and 112 (Z&S Transport), school bus 613 to Waddesdon School (Red Rose Travel), and school buses 824 and 825 to the Lord Williams's Schools (Z&S Transport) may be varied while the work is being carried out.

It is possible that the above plans may need to be varied as the work progresses in these very busy roads where the gas mains run down the centre of the carriageway.

We have been unable to speak to anyone at Arriva as to what their managers are telling their drivers to do. Even the drivers don't seem to know at the moment! Time will tell ...

Station Road

As part of their Plane and Patch programme Transport for Bucks is working in Station Road, probably only between Church End and White Cross Road.

The operation involves cutting out the damaged road surface patch and completely resurfacing this with new material rather than repairing individual potholes.

The work is being done between 9.30am and 3.30pm during Wednesday, Thursday and Friday — 10th-12th April.

There will be localised traffic management which will involve road closure, or traffic lights.
