Joint statement from Buckinghamshire County Council and Taylor Wimpey North
Thames


A new traffic management system is being put in place at the New Road junction with the
A41 in Aylesbury thanks to continuing, collaborative discussions between developer Taylor
Wimpey and Buckinghamshire County Council.

The system, which removes the need for temporary traffic lights, will be installed by Taylor
Wimpey this evening (Thursday 18th July) with appropriate barriers and signage.
The aim is to ensure the smoothest possible traffic flow while Taylor Wimpey carries out
work on the new junction, which will serve a new housing development east of Aston
Clinton Road.

The measures being installed this evening are as follows:


● Temporary ban on right turns from New Road onto the A41
● Left turn out of New Road onto the A41 to be a ‘give way’ junction
● Right turn from the A41 to New Road to be a ‘give way’ junction apart from during
peak hours, when traffic will be manually controlled with stop/go boards to minimise
queues
● Temporary pedestrian signals on the A41
● Uncontrolled pedestrian crossing in New Road using existing traffic islands

The layout will be monitored over the coming days to make sure it is working as planned and
may be amended if necessary to achieve this.

A spokesperson for Taylor Wimpey and Buckinghamshire County Council said: “We
recognise that the traffic management plan we initially had in place was not as effective as it
should have been and apologise to local residents for the delays they have faced. We have
been working closely together to address this and will be putting new measures in place
which we hope will result in a significant improvement in the flow of traffic.

“The new measures will be closely monitored and we will continue to work together to
ensure we are doing all we can to keep disruption to a minimum.”
