Traffic Management Update

Minimal traffic disruption is anticipated over the coming week as works are planned to be undertaken on the footways and making use of road narrowings only, maintaining two way traffic flow.  Temporary traffic lights are to be used for electrical connection changes at Rayners Lane junction and Abbey Barn Road, but minimal delays are expected as they will be replicating existing signals which will be switched off temporarily for works to be undertaken safely.
Week commencing 18th February works planned for Knaves Beech crossing will require the use of off peak two way traffic lights which will result in some traffic disruption.  This work is planned to start on the 18th February to coincide with the half term holiday, however depending on programme may take up to 3 weeks to complete.  TfB officers will be attending site regularly to monitor the works and seek to minimise traffic delays as far as practicable. 

Incidentally, footway resurfacing works are due to start on Rayners Avenue this week as part of TfB’s capital maintenance plan.  These works will be undertaken under two way traffic lights for up to 4 weeks.  Further information is available here.
**Please note, we have this morning (13 February 2019) been alerted to unusually high congestion on the A40 unrelated to the project works, centering on the Micklefield Road area. Colleagues have been investigating the issue and discovered there was a fault with the signals at Abbey Barn junction. This has now been resolved and traffic has returned to normal.**
The A40 London Road corridor improvements project is a partnership project between Buckinghamshire County Council and Buckinghamshire Thames Valley Local Enterprise Partnership with funding secured from the Local Growth Fund and DfT’s National Productivity Investment Fund.
