LANE closures will be in place on Marlow Hill as work to form a new road junction for the Handy Cross Hub site begins on Thursday.

Transport for Buckinghamshire said the lane closures will only be in place on the A404 outside of peak hours to minimise traffic disruption.

It is estimated the work will continue “well into 2015” but construction will cease in December for the Christmas period, TfB said.

The multi-million-pound Handy Cross Hub project will include a new Wycombe Sports Centre, coachway park-and-ride, a hotel, offices and a Waitrose store.
