The A41 on Bicester Road and the Bicester Road/Jackson Road/Dickens Way junction will be worked on in Aylesbury next week, the council confirms.

Bicester Road which has been closed all week, will still be worked on next week.

The closure of this road is one of several emergency works which has led to severe delays across town in the past fortnight.

planned work begins for seven weeks at one Aylesbury junction

Emergency works beginning on certain roads, just as schools reopened, has caused chaos and hour-long delays at peak times for motorists in Aylesbury.

Maintenance planned on the A41 means a two-way traffic flow will be in place and certain parts of the road will be coned off.

At the junction a temporary roundabout will be erected and drivers will have to navigate a single lane system.

Footway closures and diversion routes will also be used in the next seven weeks at the junction.
