Zebra Delay

Home » News » Zebra Delay
School Crossing Campaign 08

It had been hoped that the current school half-term holiday would provide an ideal opportunity for the new zebra crossing to be installed between the two schools on Woodways.

However, a further delay in starting the work has just been received from Transport for Bucks.

Below, we publish the communication in full so that, like us, you can enjoy its literary finesse.

"Friday 27th May decision report, publication, by Demographic; a 'decision to be taken' notice has been published on the Bucks CC website.

This is followed by a 5 working day "Representation Period", (for the public to respond) to the date, 6th June.

If Report is formally signed-off by Lead Cabinet Member on the 7th June, this begins the 3 day Period for Local Members to contest/query the scheme, ("Calling in"), ending 5.00pm on 10th June.

This takes us to 11th June, (Saturday), therefore not likely,

Therefore Start of works on the ground is hopefully Monday 13th June.

Your patience is appreciated with this news, disappointingly further affecting the final programme. I hope that an accelerated works programme may recoup some lost time, but this cannot be confirmed until discussion have been held with the contractors."
