Night-time road closures announced as work continues on Town Centre Masterplan

The High Wycombe Masterplan road redevelopment is progressing well since it started on 21 May this year, with work continuing on the Westbourne Street section of the plan.

In order to allow major carriageway works on the A40 to be completed as quickly as possible, an overnight road closure will come into effect along the A40 from the A40 Pastures / Desborough Avenue Junction to Abbey Way / A4128 Arch Way Roundabout. The closure will take place from 19:00 to 06:00 every night from 29 June to 7 August. To aid with traffic flows across High Wycombe during the closure, a diversion route will be put in place, which is Desborough Avenue – Marlow Road – A4010 Marlow Hill – Abbey Way – A4128 Arch Way – Peter Knoll Way – Bellfield Road.

Variable message signs are in operation across High Wycombe to advise drivers of the temporary arrangements. Weekly bulletins, Twitter and website updates are also being used to inform residents and encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance.

The County Council's priority is to ensure that this development is ready as soon as possible, but would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused while works are underway.

As part of the construction works, further road closures are expected in future, and more information will be made available at the earliest opportunity.
