Three major town centre roads in High Wycombe will be shut overnight as phase five of the masterplan finishes up. 

Queen Victoria Road, Easton Street and Crendon Street will be shut from 8pm to 6am from Tuesday, May 7, for five nights. 

Contractors will be carrying out final surfacing work after months of roadworks in the area as part of phase five of the High Wycombe town centre masterplan.

Phase five, once completed, will see Queen Victoria Road and Easton Street become two-way in a bid to cut congestion, while two “straight-ahead” northbound lanes will be added on Queen Victoria Road, relieving pressure from Abbey Way Gyratory.

These lanes will merge into one lane on Crendon Street. 

Right turns will be prohibited on all arms of the Queen Victoria Road/High Street/Easton Street junction to improve safety, reduce queues and improve journey times. 

Vehicle entrances to the law court and the district council offices will also be reversed. 

Left and right turns will be permitted from the A40 Abbey Way onto Easton Street and the street lighting will be replaced. 

New columns with the road names etched into them have already been installed along Queen Victoria Road and Easton Street. 

Meanwhile, for pedestrians, there will be new informal pedestrian crossing point across Easton Street near the magistrates' court.

Phase six of the masterplan already got underway at the beginning of the year with works to improve the Cressex Link Road.
