Preparation work to start on conversion of Crest Road roundabout in Cressex to traffic light controlled junction
Preparation work is to start to covert a roundabout in Cressex, High Wycombe to a junction controlled by traffic lights.
On Monday 2nd March 2020 engineers will start ground investigation work in preparation for the conversion of the Crest Road roundabout at Cressex, High Wycombe to a junction controlled by traffic lights.
The junction needs improved capacity and better traffic flow ahead of the planned development of ‘Cressex Island’.
The preparation work is to be undertaken by contractors commissioned by Buckinghamshire County Council who will check the condition of the drainage system, excavate trial pits to establish the location of utilities and test the condition of the road foundations.
The work will be done at night, from 8.00pm to 5.30am, in order to avoid disrupting daytime school, business and shopping traffic. The preparation work is due to finish by Friday 13th March 2020.
The engineers will be working overnight in John Hall Way, as a result there will be a westbound lane closure and traffic will be reduced to single lane with three way temporary traffic lights.
Mark Shaw, Deputy Leader and Transport Cabinet Member at Buckinghamshire County Council, said: ‘This is a very busy area during the day, which is why we’ve instructed our contractors to work at night, and they will try to keep noise to a minimum.
I apologise in advance for any inconvenience these works may cause.‘
