Work item details

What are we doing?
As part of our continued preparatory works for the HS2 line, the Stoke Mandeville Relief Road and the construction of our internal haul road we need to install long term closures on two roads in the area– Marsh Lane and Old Risborough Road.
When will these works take place?
Both Marsh Lane and Old Risborough Road will be closed from Wednesday 5th May. From this date there will be no through route for vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians via either of these roads.
Initial activity will be enabling works which will include topsoil stripping and site clearance works followed by earthworks and likely diversion of Thames Water assets. Following this the construction of our internal haul road will start and eventually the HS2 line of route.
We will endeavour to keep to this start dates however this may differ depending on external factors.

Where will the works take place?
On Marsh Lane we will need to close approximately 600m of the road in order to construct the HS2 rail line, the Stoke Mandeville Relief Road and our internal haul road. On Old Risborough Road we are installing a closure at the midway point of the road, this is for the construction of the HS2 line and our internal haul road. Full access will be maintained for those close residents and businesses.
