Transport for Buckinghamshire is setting the wheels in motion on a £1.5 million worth of road surface dressing at various locations across the county today (Monday), as part of their county-wide rolling works programme, ‘We’re working on it’.
Some speed restrictions will be in place as a result and TfB plans to carry out the works in the following order and they are due for completion on Sunday July 21:
A404 Amersham Road, Amersham- Estimated Length 770m, Estimated works cost £110,000
A355 Gore Hill, Amersham- Estimated Length 2700m, Estimated works cost £340,000
A4010 Aylesbury Road, Little Kimble- Estimated Length 1860m, Estimated works cost £85,000
A418 Oxford Road, Stone- Estimated Length 1610m, Estimated works cost £115,000
A4129 Longwick Road, Longwick- Estimated Length 1033m, Estimated works cost £115,000
A418 Aylesbury Road, Rowsham- Estimated Length 1393m, Estimated works cost £110,000
Whaddon Road, Mursley- Estimated Length 4200m, Estimated works cost £500,000
A422 Brackley Road, Westbury- Estimated Length 2085m, Estimated works cost £120,000
A statement stressed the works are a ‘rolling programme’ so dates of working on each site will depend on progress on the previous site.
“Surface dressing is usually carried out during the daytime as it is a weather and temperature dependent process. However, with the current hot weather conditions forecast for this week, it will not be possible to carry out these surface dressing works during the day,” the statement read.
“To deliver the current programme on time, TfB will be carrying out the works during the cooler evening and overnight hours. Should weather conditions change, the programme will revert back to daytime working.
“There is a bedding-in process that needs to take place following the surface dressing treatment being laid, which means that interim temporary speed limits will be in place. TfB urges drivers to respect these speed limits to prevent the spray of loose chippings prior to the road surface being swept after the bedding-in period. This process usually takes between two-four weeks.”
