Local Transport Closures for HS2 Works

HS2 Works Notification: Notice of Dobbins Lane closure – 22 – 28 April 2024

In April we will need to implement a road closure on Dobbins Lane on the corner with High Street to carry out water main maintenance works.

These works will connect the water main to the Wendover Green Tunnel compound. The new water connection will reduce the number of deliveries to our sites, reducing the number of vehicles in the Wendover area.

While we do the work, we will be monitoring the water pressure to ensure we do not affect the water supply to Wendover town residents.

Due to the location of the water main access point we will need to close a small section of Dobbins Lane at the junction with Wendover High Street for six days to complete these works. A signposted diversion route will be in place.

When will these works take place?
The closure of a section of Dobbins Lane will be from Monday 22 April to Sunday 28 April

Resident and business access will be maintained via the diversion route.

The footpath will remain open for pedestrian traffic.

These dates may be subject to change due to circumstances outside of our control but will be completed on or around the timings specified.




HS2 Works Notification: Leather Lane road closure, Great Missenden / The Lee, for survey works – 6 to 7 April 2024

There will be a temporary road closure of Leather Lane, Great Missenden / The Lee so that we can undertake topographic land surveys ahead of our works starting. A topographic survey is a type of survey that maps the boundaries, features, and levels of a site prior to detailed design work.

Leather Lane will be temporarily closed to traffic from 9.30am to 3.30pm, after which the traffic management will be removed, on the following dates:

  • 6 and 7 April 2024

Traffic will be diverted via Potter Row, Frith Hill, and Aylesbury Road (A413) during the closure.

The farmer’s access will be maintained.

What will we be doing?
A small team of surveying engineers will be visible in the highway whilst taking readings from the monitoring equipment. To do this safely Leather Lane will be temporarily closed at off peak times.




Notice of closure for final tie in works on Ellesborough Road

Following the works on Ellesborough Road later this week, the road will be diverted to traffic on the new alignment. The new road will be under a lane closure and traffic management temporarily due to a high voltage cable enclosed in concrete that needs be removed. Traffic management will be in place from Thursday 28 March to Sunday 19 May. Access for residents on the old alignment of the road will be maintained.

 The works will be for piling movement and works. This will require a lane closure, and a temporary two-way traffic light signal will be in place during the closure. The works have been coordinated to take place during off-peak hours to avoid disruption to residents and road users as much as possible. These works are scheduled for the following dates between the hours 9:00am-3:00pm:

  • Thursday 7 March
  • Wednesday 27 March
  • Wednesday 3 April

Notice of overnight road closure A413 London Road, Wendover

As we move to the next phase of construction of the Small Dean Viaduct, we need to close the A413, London Road, to safely carry out construction of the viaduct piers.

During this time, we will be working on excavation work to construct the piers, and construction of a sheet pile wall.

When will these works take place?
Overnight full road closure (8.30pm to 5.30am):

  • Monday 26 February to Saturday 2 March
  • Monday 4 March to Saturday 9 March
  • Friday 29 March to Tuesday 2 April

Every effort will be made to complete these works within three overnight closures.

However, we have planned the below contingency dates if the works can’t be completed due to circumstances outside of our control, such as adverse weather.

  • Monday 11 to Tuesday 19 March

To minimise disruption, we will introduce a fully signposted diversion route and have chosen to work overnight during full closures, to reduce our road impact.

These dates may be subject to change due to circumstances outside of our control but works will be completed in or around the set timeframes.
