The reopening of the Stoke Hammond Bypass has been scheduled for 6.00am on Monday 8th October 2018.
Contractors expect to complete road markings and installation of reflective studs on the Wing-bound carriageway by Sunday 7th October) 2018, having resurfaced the five-mile length of these lanes during the past four weeks.
Mark Shaw, Buckinghamshire County Council Deputy Leader and Transport Cabinet Member, said the £4.5 million eight-week surfacing programme had been an enormous logistical and technical engineering project – one of the county’s biggest road resurfacing schemes in recent years.
‘We were aiming at a Sunday reopening, but there was a hiccup in the regular supply of surfacing material, which means we’ll be a little later with painting road markings and installing reflective studs,‘ said Mark. ‘It’s in the interests of everyone’s safety that we reopen a little later than planned, and I apologise for any inconvenience.’
Work on the bypass began on Monday 13th August 2018 with the resurfacing of the five mile long northbound (towards Milton Keynes) stretch of carriageway.
