HS2 works close A413 at Little Missenden for one weekend

The A413 at Little Missenden between the Keepers Lane junction to just past Pipers Wood Lane, will be closed from 9pm on Friday 18 June to 5am on Monday 21 June.

This is so work can take place to divert and install utilities as part of the construction of the HS2 Little Missenden vent shaft site. These include water, electricity and telecoms.

To do these works safely and reduce the need for further full closures over the next few months, HS2’s contractors Align will be doing this work over one full weekend.

Councillor Steve Broadbent, Buckinghamshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport said:

“The original plan was to shut the road over two weekends in April but following local discussions we considered the likely volume of displaced traffic and the associated impacts, unacceptable at that time.

Since then we have been working with Align, HS2 Limited and local Ward and Parish Councillors to minimise the impact on the local area and agreed that a full closure over one weekend was the better option. Notices are being posted to all households in the local area and electronic message boards (VMS) will be positioned on the main roads between Stoke Mandeville and Amersham, warning drivers of the up and coming closure. The diversion will also be actively managed by traffic marshals at key locations and closure points either side of the work site at Little Missenden."
