Sue Gilbert, Clerk to Haddenham Parish Council, has confirmed that (at long last) the remedial line marking has been programmed to occur along Woodways, in the vicinity of the zebra crossing — now 2 years old !
Apparently, it has been a battle attempting to cajole the contractor into arranging with the line marking sub-contractor to return to site to undertake this work.
Transport for Bucks also intends to carry out some collaborative working along the adjacent section of road, to undertake repairs to the carriageway and footway, in the vicinity of the eastern-most speed cushions.
The state of the road has been subject to much comment on local social media.
The works have been programmed over the half-term holiday (specifically, Thursday 31st May to Friday 1st June) to avoid disruption to the schools, and the intention is also to divert all of the buses between 9.00am and 4.00pm, so the markings can dry off, and avoid being lifted by the bus tyres, (which potentially occurred to an extent with the original lining on the earlier zebra contract, due to the narrow road width).
