The Wendover Bypass is soon to be re-surfaced with a 'low noise surface' according to Buckinghamshire County Council.
Work on the new £1.51 million surface was due to start in the August bank holiday week. However, issues relating to the availability and testing of the specialist material now means contractors will start work from 7.00pm on Friday 20th September.
The two-week programme of work will include night time closures from 7.00pm to 6.00am on weekdays with narrower lanes and a 30 mph speed limit during the day.
Two full weekend closures will also be needed, running from 7.00pm on Friday to 6.00am on Monday. The first, over the weekend of 20th, 21st and 22nd September is for essential preparatory works, with the second over the weekend of 27th, 28th and 29th September for the surfacing.
Diversion routes for the night time and weekend closures will be clearly signed. Advanced notice signs will also go up on all major approaches shortly.
Speaking about the resurfacing work, County Council Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Transportation, Mark Shaw said "Of course, I realise there will be some disruption for local residents and the travelling public, particularly over the two weekend closure periods, but I hope everyone will bear with us. This is the first time we've laid very low noise surfacing in the County so its exciting for us as well as for local residents who will get the specialist surfacing that they overwhelmingly voted for."
The works will be carried out by Transport for Buckinghamshire in conjunction with Eurovia Infrastructure Ltd.
