Woodways closure_May 2016

UPDATE:
We received the following update from Transport for Bucks on Thursday 12th May 2016.

The two contractors were appointed on Tuesday 10th May — one for the Civil works and one for the Electrical works. Final planning and preparatory work by the contractors will now take place. Works mobilisation on site is anticipated within the next two weeks, to capitalise on the window provided by the half-term school break.

Subject to these activities completing in time, TfB is hoping that works can begin on site during the week commencing 23rd May 2016.

Original Article, date 24th April 2016:

The public consultation regarding the proposed zebra crossing on Woodways has gained the necessary public support, and Transport for Bucks has confirmed that the road will be closed for up to three weeks.

It is hoped that the work will begin in early May, but if the start date slips into mid-May, its completion may extend into the first week of June, which will be helpful as it overlaps with the schools' half-term break. We will provide further information as soon as more precise dates are known.

Transport for Bucks is anticipating the use of 'Echo-Barriers' to help mitigate noise impact from the works' operations, on the adjacent schools and homes.

During the installation work the whole length of Woodways will be closed, from the Clay Corner crossroads, past the two community schools, to the double mini-roundabout at the Churchway junction.

Alternative routes will be signposted, but the obvious diversion will be via the north section of Churchway and the north section of Stanbridge Road.
