Temporary traffic lights for water main works on A355 Amersham Road at Beaconsfield

| July 17, 2019

Work on a water main at Beaconsfield will require temporary traffic lights on the main A355 Amersham Road from 7.00am on Tuesday 23rd July 2019 until Tuesday 30th July 2019.

The lights will be needed 24 hours a day but will be controlled manually during peak hours to try to keep traffic flowing and minimise congestion.

The work, by Affinity Water, which follows a week of emergency work, is needed to complete a mains connection as part of the realignment of Maxwell Road and the creation of a new junction with the main road. The excavation for the works is expected to be 6m x 6m x 1.8m deep (20ft x 20ft x 6ft).

The work is all part of the A355 improvements to provide the town with a relief road which is under construction.

Mark Shaw, Buckinghamshire County Council Deputy Leader and Transport Cabinet Member, said: ‘I do appreciate no one likes delays in their journey, and I apologise for any inconvenience.

We’ve looked at all ways to undertake these works without causing disruption, and I’ve been assured Affinity Water will get the job done as quickly as they can, while making sure people still have running water in their homes!
