HS2 will introduce a temporary roundabout on the A41 between Aylesbury and Waddesdon ahead of its main construction work.

The purpose of the roundabout is to improve road safety, facilitate the future realignment of the A41 and enable access to our site compound, HS2 says.

The roundabout will be situated on Fleet Marston one mile further along on the A41 from Waddesdon Hill, four miles outside Central Aylesbury.
