| May 5, 2023

Week commencing Monday 8th May 2023 roadworks are scheduled to take place at the following locations in Buckinghamshire.

The works are part of a rolling programme. As some activities are weather dependent the dates may change at short notice.

Priority Works

A413 Wendover Road, Aylesbury (Junction with Wendover Way) : Thursday 4th May 2023 for four night-time shifts, but not during the bank holiday weekend. Works will therefore be completed on the night of 10 May 2023. The road will be open but with temporary surface : new binder course – and no road markings over the Coronation bank holiday weekend.

High Street, Aylesbury – From the section of the road with scaffolding down to and including Exchange Street roundabout : Thursday 11th May 2023 to Wednesday 17th May 2023 – Priority works using a road closure in operation between 8.00pm to 6.00am.

Plane and Patch Works

Martinsend Lane, Great Missenden – From outside number 8 High Street to the Trafford Road junction : Tuesday 9th May 2023 to Friday 12th May 2023 – Plane and patch works using a road closure in operation between 8.00pm and 6.00am.

So far in 2023 Buckinghamshire Council has received reports of much higher numbers of road defects than in recent years due to the impact of the winter weather, a situation reflected nationwide. In response, Buckinghamshire Highways teams are working seven days a week, prioritising the most dangerous potholes and making urgent repairs. Other potholes and defects are scheduled for repair according to safety criteria and Buckinghamshire Highways is working through this plan, with eight repair crews are aiming to complete 2,500 jobs per month.

Given the current condition of the roads, which is an issue across the country at present, Buckinghamshire Council will also be using its emergency powers, alongside the new highway contracts, to fast track a number of essential road repairs. Unfortunately, it will not always be possible to give normal periods of advance notice, and for this the Council apologises, but the Council believes that undertaking the road repairs themselves are the most important issue at this time. Buckinghamshire Council will endeavour to advise local communities and businesses in the immediate vicinity via letter drops, but if this is not possible, we again apologise and will ensure that any inconvenience or disruption is minimal whilst we undertake the essential repairs and improvements.

In addition to the above, the Council will also have ten gangs carrying out patching and emergency repairs, three jet patching crews, drainage cleaning, and street lighting repairs, so you should expect to see a lot of activity on the highways in the coming weeks and months.
