Roadworks about to start - Hughenden Avenue

Notification of works
Works are due to commence on Hughenden Avenue on the 29 June related to the new spine road. The following work is scheduled to take place:

Hughenden Avenue
A four-way signal-controlled junction will be constructed linking Bellfield Road to Hughenden Avenue and Hughenden Avenue to Coates Lane.
The eastbound approach lane to the west of the new junction will be widened to accommodate a bus stop with the existing footpath realigned to the north accommodating underground services diversion works.
The existing central refuge is to be removed and relocated to the east of the junction and a controlled pedestrian crossing will be constructed to the west of the junction. New street lighting will be installed.
The condition of the existing carriageway surface is currently being reviewed and a decision on the extent of necessary reconstruction will be made once this is considered.

Traffic Management
Works on Hughenden Avenue will generally be completed under restricted hours working, 09:30 to 15:30 Monday to Friday for 6 weeks, using temporary 2-way signal control.

From 3 August, carriageway reconstruction works will be undertaken which may require periods of 24-hour temporary signals operation and/or road closures. A further update will be issued prior to this work with more details.

Estimated dates/duration
Works in Hughenden Avenue will commence on the South verge from 29 June 2015 for 6 weeks. No road closures will be in place - work will be undertaken using traffic signals.

Reconstruction works to include the North verge and both lanes of the carriageway will commence from 3 August 2015 over 8 weeks. Details of any road closures associated with this will be issued in due course.

This is a Wycombe District Council project, with Buckinghamshire County Council coordinating the work as highway authority. More information on this scheme can be found here:
