Delays are expected

The works are expected to last for three weeks

They are being undertaken by HS2, who say:

"We are undertaking land survey work and a break from the highway in order to develop a site compound along the A418, Oxford Road, near Hartwell. There will also be tarmac work on the temporary entrance to allow for safe access. As the survey work is being carried out on the carriageway and to minimise the impact, this work will be undertaken overnight. The road will be fully reopened each morning and the traffic management removed"

Transport for Buckinghamshire tweeted today:

"From Monday January 11, there will be roadworks on the A418, Oxford Road between the roundabout on Coldharbour Way down to the junction of Portway Road.

"Please expect some delays and diversion in the area for 3 weeks"

When will these works take place?

 The tarmac work for the current temporary site entrance will commence on Friday 8th January 2021. Traffic management will be in place from 10am to 3pm while the works are completed.

 There will be a break in the highway work from Monday 11th January 2021. There will be traffic lights in the area intermittently for approximately three weeks from 9am – 3pm, outside of peak traffic times.

 There will also be a temporary diversion with trial hole work to be completed for the existing footpath around the site entrance for the duration of the works starting from the 4 th January 2021.

 The survey work involving traffic management will commence on Monday 25th January and complete them on the morning of Wednesday 27th January 2021.

These works will be undertaken over night with rolling traffic lights to minimise disruption. This activity measures the features and levels of the land and enables us to map the surface exactly.

HS2 will be using total stations and laser levels to carry out these activities which do not emit any noise. The traffic management will be removed, and the road will be fully opened by 6am each morning
