Night time roadworks - 17th August 2018 
It is necessary for us to now carry out surfacing works on Queen Alexandra Road and Suffield Road. These works will be carried out during off peak hours to minimise the impact to traffic in the area. We also expect the works to be undertaken with minimal noise and vibration impact to nearby residents.

Please note that this is not a road closure and normal traffic will have access to the hospital entrance throughout.

Works outside BNU and Office Outlet
3-way traffic lights will be in operation at the bottom of Queen Alexandra Road to allow work to be carried out in both bus laybys, the BNU access and Office Outlet car park entrance, along with surfacing to the footway either side of the main hospital entrance. Areas effected marked with arrows below.

Works adjacent to Loakes Road
Additionally 2-way traffic lights will also be in operation on Suffield Road to allow work to be carried out on the central reserve at the top end of the works west of the Loakes Road junction.

Remaining roadworks until the 24th August 2018 
The remaining elements of the scheme are now due to be completed next week, which include the resin footway and old lighting column removal which were unable to be carried out as planned in July. This delay I primarily due to a fault in the utility providers cabling which is used to power the street lights.

The remaining areas where of the footway is being resurfaced will need to be temporarily closed to pedestrians whilst these works are underway and we will ensure a safe route for pedestrians through the works.

As a result of these minor snagging and defects there is now a slight extension to our programme that was originally planned to finish in July.  However the project team wants to ensure that these areas are safetly completed before we return the highway to full use by the public.

We do apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by these necessary works and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and co-operation throughout the duration of the project.

Access to the school, residential properties, university, hospital and emergency vehicles during roadworks
We advise all local road users and visitors to the area to plan their journeys accordingly, and to expect some disruption and additional queuing when travelling through this part of High Wycombe especially during the AM and PM peak times. Please contact our Public Liaison Officer directly (details below) if you have any issues or concerns about your access ahead of the remaining works.
Use of temporary traffic lights during this roadworks
For the remainder of the project traffic management (TM) will be left in place overnight to maintain a minimum safe carriageway width for all heavy vehicles and ambulances through the works area as well as allowing for a safe working zone for the construction team and walk way for pedestrians.

The additional benefits of retaining the traffic management during critical elements of work will allow for surfacing works due to be undertaken to cure ahead of reopening the road to two way traffic.

As we progress towards the finish we will continue to provide regular updated information about the scheme, through the website, BCC tweets #HWTCMP, e-mail updates, bulletin boards and Variable Message Signs (VMS).
Reduction of car parking
Please be aware that the car parking on Suffield Road between Rutland Street and Loakes Road has now been removed and the new Temporary Traffic Regulation Order for Suffield Road is now in force. This along with information on the new parking arrangements for Queen Alexandra Road and advice on alternative car parks within the High Wycombe Town Centre can be viewed here.
