Dear Residents and Businesses,

Welcome to the first information bulletin for the Buckingham to Winslow Cycleway Extension Scheme providing information on scheme progress for Phase 1 all the way through to completion.

Introduction:

The Buckingham to Winslow cycleway extension scheme is a continuation of the cycling and walking improvements already completed along the A413 from Winslow town centre to the Lace Hill roundabout in Buckingham. The scheme will complete the link between Winslow and Buckingham town centres. The scheme is funded by developer contributions of £350,000.

The extension scheme is being delivered in two phases. Consultation on phase 1 of the scheme ended 28 January 2018 and the construction will now commence on the 23 July 2018. It is anticipated that the construction works will take approximately 6 weeks to complete.

Phase 2 of the scheme – shared cycle-footway on the western side of A413 London Road providing connections to the Swan Pool, The Buckingham School and The Royal Latin School – is currently being consulted on.  For further information please view the project webpage www.buckscc.gov.uk/buckinghamcycleway

Construction Programme:

The construction works will be carried out at various sites in Buckingham including the Badgers Estate, Bourton Road and in Bourton Park to create the new formal route for Phase 1, which will connect into the back of Cornwall’s Meadow car park. To view the Phase 1 overview plan click here.

The work will be undertaken using temporary lane closures and 2–way temporary traffic signals as necessary depending on the location of the works. During the works some delays may be unavoidable for road users.

During the works access will be maintained for residents. However, on occasions for health and safety reasons, road users may be requested to wait temporarily to enable completion of a particular operation/activity by the contractor. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

We will endeavour to keep construction noise levels on the site as low as possible. However, due to the nature of these works some noisy activities will be required so we apologise for this in advance.

For any queries regarding the works during weekdays, contact Adrian Lane (T-ALANE@buckscc.org) at Transport for Buckinghamshire.
