Strengthening of bridge on Hughenden Avenue

Work to strengthen a bridge in Hughenden Avenue, High Wycombe, started on Monday (February 23). It will take four weeks.

The work, by Transport for Buckinghamshire, involves building a traffic island in the middle of the road. This, say engineers, will guide vehicles in their own lanes to spread weight evenly over the strongest parts of the bridge.

This island will also help to deter parking on pavements, but it is not intended as a pedestrian crossing point and will be installed with pedestrian deterrent paving as well as a single illuminated sign and two non-illuminated bollards.
During the construction works, a 24-hour two-way temporary traffic signal will be provided to maintain alternate flow with additional manual control during the peak hours to ease traffic flow.

Transport for Buckinghamshire would like to apologise for any inconvenience and delays that may be caused by this work, and would encourage any queries to be directed to the contact centre - 0845 230 2882 or 01296 382416.
