A notification from HS2 regarding works on the A41 at Fleet Marston

What are HS2 doing?

HS2 are creating new habitat sites for protected species in our area. These new sites will be part of the ‘green corridor’ of connected wildlife habitats alongside the route of the future railway.

To be able to access two of the habitat sites HS2 are creating south of the A41 at Fleet Marston, they will need to use temporary traffic lights to reduce traffic to one lane in the location shown on the map. This is so HS2 can create a safe site entrance off the A41 for vehicles during the construction of the habitat sites.

The temporary traffic lights will be in place from 16th April 2018 and the works will take a maximum of three weeks. The lights will only be in place from 10am to 4pm each day to reduce delays in peak hours. Sign-age will be put in place to warn drivers prior to the work starting.

HS2 will carry out these works only with permission from Buckinghamshire County Council’s Transport Department and will comply with their requirements.

The works to the site entrance will require a small number of HGV movements taking away spoil and delivering materials. A mechanical digger will be used to clear the area and powered tools will be used to create the new site entrance.

How may this affect me?

There will be traffic delays to journeys on the A41 in this area. HS2 are aware this is a busy road and will make every effort to minimise the duration of the works if they can do so safely.
