Bucks County Council has apologised to motorists after an announcement that much-needed resurfacing work to the Oxford Road has been delayed for a third time.

The county council said: “With the delays to other resurfacing work caused by the recent rainfall, and the subsequent delays to the start of work on the Oxford Road, the decision has been taken to now start the work on Tuesday August 26.

“To help minimise any disruption to road users during the bank holiday weekend, the decision has been taken to start the work after the bank holiday, rather than have lane restrictions in place over the long weekend.

“The work is still planned to last six nights with work taking place from 7pm until 6am.

“Road closures will be in operation with a full signed diversion in place.

“Bucks County Council apologise for the delay in starting this resurfacing work.”

The work was originally scheduled to begin on Thursday August 14, however due to changes in the programme this was pushed back to Monday August 18.

Wet weather and delays to work at other sites led to the works being pushed back further and they were scheduled to get underway today (Wednesday).

The work has now been moved back again and is due to start on Tuesday August 26 after the Bank Holiday weekend.
