The following live and planned roadworks and road closures are necessary for the completion of works delivered as part of the High Wycombe Town Centre Masterplan. As future schemes are progressed we will add new roadworks notices below.

Alternative Route Phase 3 Construction Works

There are a number of utility diversions (gas, water, electricity and telephone) which are needed for the delivery of the Alternative Route Phase 3 scheme, and BCC are undertaking these together with the main works. Inland Homes plc also need utility diversions to be undertaken for their development and the BCC project team are working collaboratively with them and the utility companies to minimise the cost and impact on road users, local residents and key stakeholders.

Rutland Street

  • Relocation of existing sub-station from Lily's Walk to Rutland street by Scottish & Southern Electricity (Works currently being planned)
  • Thames Water mains, surface and foul water drainage diversions (Works currently being planned)

Suffield Road

  • Lowering of existing gas services by Cadent Gas. As part of these works Cadent will need to temporarily close the access to Rutland Street from Suffield Road. (Works complete)
  • Lowering of fibre optic cables and removal of redundant cables and telephone poles by BT Openreach (Works due to complete 8 Dec)

Alternative Route Phase 4 Construction Works

Buckinghamshire County Council HWTCMP Roadspace Permit Numbers:
Queen Alexandra Road - 35003364
Suffield Road - 35003365

Rutland Street (North) 

To deliver the Phase 4 scheme we will once again need to close Rutland Street between Desborough Road and Wendover Street from the 25 September until 27 July 2018. This is where we will keep the site compound and welfare facilities for the site team and contractor. As members of the Considerate Contractors Scheme Eurovia Contracting are aware of the potential noise and environmental impacts of the site compound located next to a residential area and will seek to minimise their impact and will be a good neighbour throughout the delivery of Phase 4.

There are a small number of utility diversions (gas, water, electricity and telephone) which are needed for the delivery of the Alternative Route Phase 4 scheme, BCC together with the utility providers are working together to undertake these within the main works to avoid further disruption following completion of the project.

Planned Traffic Management for Phase 4 Construction Works

Phase 4 Overnight Road Closures - Queen Alexandra Road and Suffield Road

During the main construction works overnight road closures will be required on Queen Alexandra Road and Suffield Road to carry out the final road surfacing with diversions in place. These will take place in late spring 2018 and we would like to reiterate to all of our stakeholders that we are looking to construct this scheme without day time road closures subject to road conditions. View the planned extents of the overnight road closures. We will confirm the exact dates of the overnight closures due course.

Queen Victoria Road / Easton Street - Phase 5 Construction Works

Further information will be released once the scheme is approved following the completion of the consultation period in January 2018.

As part of the High Wycombe Town Centre Masterplan, Buckinghamshire County Council will be undertaking investigatory works on Queen Victoria Road, Easton Street, Crendon Street and on a small extent of Abbey Way by the Easton Street / London Road junction and the eastern end of the High Street. Using temporary traffic signals and lane closures, one lane at a time during off peak periods (09:30 – 15:30), contractors will check the location of utilities, undertake trial holes and jet existing drainage, ahead of a scheme expected to be formally agreed in the near future, to convert Queen Victoria Road and Easton Street into two-way roads and to improve traffic flows through the town centre.

These exploratory works are expected to take three weeks, finishing on the 04th May and the main construction work is expected to start in early summer. Further Traffic Management plans for the main construction work commencing in early Summer will be made available in the near future.

Cressex Road/Cressex Link Road - Phase 6 Construction Works

Further information will be released once the scheme is approved following the completion of the consultation period in April 2018.
