The drivers in Chesham are asked not to park on certain sections of roads after planned roadworks to improve sidewalks begin.

Road users were advised by Buckinghamshire Council that £100 million was invested in the county’s roads over the next four years.

The Council’s ‘Strategic Highway Maintenance Programme’ includes improvement of some footways.

Chesham’s Bellingdon Road from Deansway near the Chesham Fire Station to Lowndes Avenue is set to have footway improvement works between May 10 and June 3, with two-way temporary traffic lights in operation between Monday to Friday 9.30am and 3.30pm.

Footway improvement works in White Hill on Kirtle Road cul-de-sac to White Hill Close is on-going until May 24, with temporary traffic lights in operation Monday to Sunday between 9.30am and 3.30pm.

Footway improvement works affect the whole of Broadlands Avenue - also a cul-de-sac - between May 9 and June 6, and a footway give and take management system will be in operation Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm.

Steven Broadbent, Cabinet Member for Transport said: “Whenever scheduled works of this nature are carried out, careful and detailed consideration is given to the safety of both pedestrians and road users and appropriate measures are put in place.

 “The footway works at both these sites will be carried out in sections to minimize disruption to the public.

“All pedestrians and cyclists will be diverted to the opposite footway during the works. This means that one side of the footway will always remain open for the public to use.

 “We would ask drivers not to park within the parking suspended areas where the works are ongoing so our teams are able to carry out the work without unnecessary delay.

“Whilst we appreciate that works of this nature may cause some temporary disruption, we are making important improvements to our footways and roads for the benefit of the local community.”
