HS2 Works Notification: Utility works, A418 Oxford Road and Stoke Mandeville

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

As part of continued preparatory works, there will be utility works happening along the A418 and Stoke Mandeville area.

Thames Water will be conducting a water connection within the verge along the A418. In order to carry out these works safely, we will need to introduce temporary traffic management in the form of a lane closure with three-way traffic lights. We will work to open the lanes to reduce disruption as soon as possible.

Thames Water will also be conducting some works on the water supply in the Stoke Mandeville area. Thames Water should be contacting these residents directly. No traffic management is required for this work.

UKPN will be diverting an electricity cable adjacent to the A418. This diversion will facilitate upcoming works for the permanent realignment of the A418.

We understand that we are providing short notice for these works; unfortunately, utility-related works are sometimes confirmed with short notice.
