Work starts on improvements to Bierton Road, Aylesbury, on Monday and is expected to take up to three weeks.
The section of road outside Aylesbury prison will be rebuilt and resurfaced between Manor Road and Tindal Road junctions.
During improvement work traffic will be controlled by temporary lights operated by one of the team.
For the final resurfacing, the team will need an overnight closure between 7pm and 6am on a date to be announced later. While the resurfacing team are out with the equipment, they’ll resurface a short stretch of damaged Elmhurst Road from the Douglas Road roundabout.
Transport for Buckinghamshire (TfB) has checked with contractors preparing to build the new Stocklake Urban road nearby, to make sure Bierton Road is resurfaced before it’s needed as a temporary diversion route for Stocklake.
Mark Shaw, Buckinghamshire County Council’s transport cabinet member, said: “Road resurfacing is at the top of residents’ priorities, and we’re doing all we can to get this work done soon.
“I’m sorry for the inconvenience to everyone, but for a little pain, there’ll be a lot of gain.”
