Temporary Traffic Management:
  • We will be manning the traffic lights during the duration of the works to ensure that we minimise delays as far as practicable
  • Normal working hours are between 7:00am and 5:00 pm weekdays.
  • Information signs have been erected to highlight the planned works, dates and duration of works.
  • We will continue to maintain normal access and emergency access to properties during the works.
  • We recognise that there is likely to be traffic disruption during the works and we will continue to monitor conditions closely and respond accordingly.
We will of course seek to minimise local disruption and apologise in advance for any inconvenience that these works may cause.

The A4 Bath Road Sustainable Travel project was developed as part of a successful Local Sustainable Transport Fund and Local Growth Fund bid to central government to improve cycling access to rail stations across the county where there are planned improvements, including Crossrail station access.

As well as providing a new wider shared-use pedestrian cycleway, the proposal also includes Real Time Passenger Information (RTPI) installed at seven bus stop locations on both the north and south sides of Bath Road. This will provide up-to-date travel information and will encourage bus-rail connectivity as well as potentially reduce car journeys to the train stations in the area.


The scheme is being funded largely by a ring-fenced Government Local Growth Funding through Buckinghamshire Thames Valley Local Enterprise Partnership (BTVLEP), with support from developer contributions and the County Council's capital maintenance programme.
