HS2 Works Notification: Traffic management, A361 Chipping Warden

We’re writing to let you know about some planned works that we will be carrying out in your area.  

As part of our construction programme to build the Chipping Warden Green Tunnel, we are conducting two pieces of work near Chipping Warden.

Firstly, now that we are in our main phase of construction, the traffic movements at our Chipping Warden Compound have increased. For the safety for all road users, we will be installing temporary traffic lights, operating day-time only, on the A361 at the entrance to our Compound. These lights will be in place from Monday 8 August 2022.

When we complete the installation of the precast segments in the central area of the Chipping Warden Green Tunnel, we will backfill the earth in this area. This will allow us to modify the entry and exit arrangements for the compound and we anticipate the traffic lights will then be removed.

Secondly, we are progressing with the temporary bridge across the A361. This bridge will connect our site haul and access roads to our compound, helping reduce our impact on the local road network.

In order to build the east embankment for the bridge, we will be installing a temporary crossing point on the A361. This crossing point will allow our construction teams to safely move materials as well as machinery from our compound to the other side of the A361. The crossing area will be removed once our temporary bridge is completed this autumn.

The A361 will have a temporary crossing point installed from Monday 8 August 2022.
