Weather permitting work is to continue on resurfacing the A413 Wendover bypass.
Recent rain and cold temperatures have caused delays to the contractors laying and testing the new very low noise surface as during these types of weather the specialised surfacing material cannot be laid.
An overnight closure is planned from 7.00pm to 6.00am on Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th October 2019 while a planned full weekend closure will take place from 7.00pm on Friday 11th October to 6.00am on Monday 14th October 2019.
While the work continues a 30mph speed limit will be in force during the daytime and the carriageway lanes will be narrower than normal.
Buckinghamshire County Council Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Transport, Mark Shaw, apologised for the delay and said: ‘This is the first time we’ve laid very low noise surfacing in the county, and the weather hasn’t been kind to us. It’s a new experience for us as well as for Wendover residents, who will get the specialist surfacing that they overwhelmingly chose.‘
The new £1.51 million surface is being funded by HS2 as mitigation for extra noise generated by HS2 construction traffic using the road. Work is being done by Transport for Buckinghamshire in conjunction with Eurovia Infrastructure Ltd.
