Work is set to start to install traffic calming measures in Daws Hill Lane as part of Taylor Wimpey’s Pine Trees development site in Daws Hill, High Wycombe.
The developer is installing a new elongated roundabout creating two new access roads into the RAF Daws Hill site, along with associated carriageway and footpath works, two pedestrian crossings and footpath widening along Daws Hill Lane to Austenwood Close.
Work is due to start on Monday 3rd August 2015, and is anticipated to take approximately 14 weeks to complete for the roundabout. It is envisaged the footpath widening along Daws Hill Lane to Austenwood Close will continue after this period.
The majority of the works will be carried out within the RAF Daws Hill site boundary. However, there will be temporary traffic lights in Daws Hill Lane for approximately 14 weeks, with four of these weeks coinciding with the school summer holidays. Further traffic lights will be required for the footpath widening works, with details of these still to be confirmed.
Jonathan Miller, Technical Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Once complete, the traffic calming measures will provide significant improvements for road users and pedestrians.
“We apologise for any inconvenience the roadworks may cause, but would like to assure local people that we are working to ensure that the work is carried out as quickly as possible, keeping disruption to an absolute minimum.”
As part of the works, two bus stops – which will also serve as a school drop-off point for St Michael’s School – are being constructed on the Taylor Wimpey development, which will result in less school and bus traffic using Daws Hill Lane, reducing traffic delays.
The new signalised crossing at the school access will further help to reduce delays, by ensuring a better balance of time is given to vehicles and to pedestrians and preventing traffic being stopped continuously.
Pine Trees will comprise a selection of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, with a choice of five-bedroom properties now available to reserve off-plan from £740,000.
The new homes are currently selling from JNP estate agents, 18 Crendon Street, High Wycombe, HP13 6LS. The Sales Executive is available Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm and can be contacted on 01494 412187, while further information is available online at www.taylorwimpey.co.uk.
Information about the traffic calming works is on display for the public to view at Wycombe District Council offices and High Wycombe Library during their normal opening hours.
