Work to revamp a pedestrian crossing on a busy Marlow road is expected to start next week.

The crossing, on the High Street outside Liston Court, will get new traffic lights and the old cabinet on the back of the footpath will be replaced with a new cabinet and small pillar.

Work will start on February 5 and take place Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 3.30pm. It could require temporary traffic lights.

A temporary pedestrian crossing will be put in place until the new traffic signals are complete, which engineer Mark Stevens expects to be before February 16.

Mr Stevens wrote in a letter seen by the Marlow Free Press: “The contractor has been instructed to maintain access for pedestrians, residents and visitors and we will make every effort to carry out this work with the minimum disturbance, however during this time if there are any delays I apologise for any inconvenience caused.

“The type of crossing here will change from a pelican to puffin type but will remain traffic signal controlled.”

Anyone with problems during the works can report it to the site staff, contact Transport for Bucks on 01296 382416, or go online at
