Roadworks in Aylesbury happening earlier than planned

Barriers - Roadworks

Published by the Mix96 News Team at 2:51pm 16th April 2018

Temporary traffic lights now won't be needed at a roadworks site in Aylesbury.

Due to an early finish of works outside Stoke Mandeville Hospital (A & E entrance), last week, Transport for Bucks have been able to begin the works to the roundabout and road markings on Churchill Avenue a day earlier than planned.

It was their intention to install some temporary four way traffic lights for the duration of these works but it has now been decided that it is safe enough to conduct these works under lane closures and (when necessary) stop and go boards, to help minimise disruption to drivers.

However if TfB decide that the conditions are no longer safe for a specific roadworks operation, they may have to decide to utilise the original plan for four-way temporary traffic lights for a period of time.

A spokesperson said:

"Please also note that the existing lane closures (and temporary signals, if used), will only be in place during "Off-peak" hours, ie. most of the traffic management equipment will be moved off the carriageway during the morning and evening rush hour periods and overnight.

"These works are anticipated to be completed by Thursday/Friday this week, weather permitting."
