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 is 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. 

Please visit the Roadworks.org website for updates on upcoming roadworks planned in the area.

 

Bridleway footpath closure between Lily's Walk and Suffield Road

Please note that the bridleway between Lily's Walk and Suffield Road was closed on 16 July 2018 until further notice.

The private developer, Inland Homes, was granted a temporary bridleway closure order after the application was submitted to Rights of Way on the 5 March 2018. 

 

Alternative route phase 4 construction works

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

 

Rutland Street (North) between Wendover Street and Desborough Road

Please note that Rutland Street will continue to remain closed to traffic until further notice following an approved request by the developer Inland Homes plc to use the section of Rutland Street between Castle House and the former Buckingham House site. The western side footpath will remain open to pedestrians throughout the extended closure.

 

Planned traffic management for phase 4 construction works

The road is now substantially complete pending a Road Safety Audit Stage 3 due to be undertaken this summer. Any further works beyond the planned completion will be notified to the public at the earliest opportunity.

View our simplified Construction Phasing Plan for the Phase 4 roadworks.

 

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 4 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.
