UPDATE (13.40)

Both repair works have been cleared and traffic moving freely again.

We'll keep you updated in our traffic bulletins all afternoon.

A Transport for Buckinghamshire spokesman said:

'Our streetworks management team are working closely with Thames Water to ensure their emergency repairs on the A418 at Stone and in Station Road, Stoke Mandeville, are carried out as quickly as possible. The aim is to get the surfaces reinstated and traffic flowing as soon as possible.'


Traffic is, once again, bad around Aylesbury this morning, due to problems on two main roads.

A burst water main and temporary traffic lights are causing gridlock.

Here's the traffic map as of 8.50:

This is how it looked at 7.40, when the problems were just starting:

A418 Oxford Road

A water main burst in Hartwell overnight and work to fix that is affecting that main route in and out of Aylesbury.

Thames Water say the problem was reported at 5.30am, but many listeners say the problems began yesterday afternoon.

The company say they are trying to fix this and clear up. They also say people in the area may have low water pressure because of this.

You can check updates here.

As of 7.40, traffic is queued all the way back to Big Hand Moe's roundabout.

A4010 Stoke Mandeville

Meanwhile, temporary traffic lights at the roundabout in the middle of Stoke Mandeville are affecting two other roads.

Lower Road from the Hospital right back to the gyratory and Wendover Road from the gyratory are extremely slow (7.40).

This is having a knock-on effect to Walton Street and into the town centre.


Firstly, avoid if possible and find an alternative route.

Second, we'll be giving you updates all morning on 96.2fm and here on the radio player

I came back into Aylesbury at 4pm along this road and thought I must have just missed a heavy rainstorm. I didn't realise that it was burst water main that hadn't happened yet.
