THE London Road is set to shut for road works next week.

From Monday sections of the road will be closed between 7pm and 6am on weekday nights and information signs will be put up before work starts on each section, giving the actual dates and durations. 

The maintenance, to improve the condition of the High Wycombe road and prolong its life, is part of Transport for Buckinghamshire's ‘We’re Working On It’ programme.

The work will include refreshing the bus lane markings and some signage.

The sections are:

  • Rayners Avenue to Knaves Beech Way, High Wycombe
  • Micklefield Road to Hammersley Lane, High Wycombe
  • Hatters Lane to Micklefield Road, High Wycombe
  • Gordon Road to Hatters Lane, Loudwater
  • A4155/A404 Westhorpe Interchange

Work will be done at night to minimise large scale disruption during the day.

Officials said working at night is also more cost effective as more work can be done during a shorter time period.

However, owing to the location of the works, the diversion route is unfortunately quite considerable, officers added.
