Bacombe Lane, Wendover – traffic management and temporary diversion

We need to construct a plant crossing near the bottom of Bacombe Lane to prepare for the construction and earthworks around the Green Tunnel and the temporary Bacombe Lane link road. This will allow our vehicles to cross the lane safely and ensure local traffic access is maintained.

To construct the plant crossing we will need to temporarily divert Bacombe Lane to the north-east of the existing road. As this diversion will be a single lane, we will introduce traffic lights to enable vehicles to pass the plant crossing construction area safely.

The Bacombe Lane footpath has been temporarily diverted to its original alignment whilst we continue construction in the area, this will be realigned back to the previous diversion route in due course.

When finished, the plant crossing will be operational from July and will include a traffic light system. Traffic on Bacombe Lane will be held on red lights for short durations to enable our plant and vehicles to safely cross the road.

Plant crossing construction on Bacombe Lane with two-way traffic lights and temporary diversion:

  • Monday 12 June – Monday 17 July 2023
    Operation of Bacombe Lane plant crossing:
  • Monday 17 July 2023 – December 2023
