A string of improvements could be made to a busy A-road linking High Wycombe and Princes Risborough, if HS2 approves them. 

Traffic calming measures, new white edge markings and improved bridge warnings on various stretches of the A4010 - which is used y thousnads of vehicles every day - are just some of the plans that Buckinghamshire Council wants HS2 to approve. 

The government has made cash available to address issues that have been created or made worse by the construction of HS2. 

Bucks has an HS2 Road Safety Fund of £3.95 million, which will be allocated in a series of tranches up to 2026.

These are the projects that have been approved by Bucks Council - now HS2 needs to give them the go-ahead: 

  • White edge marking to various stretches of the A4010
  • Improved visibility of Bradenham Wood Lane junction with the A4010
  • Traffic calming measures on the A4010 at Bradenham and improved warnings/visibility of the Chiltern Rail bridge
  • Traffic calming measures on A4010 at Saunderton
  • A pedestrian crossing outside Hyde Heath Infant School
  • Installation of high kerbing to prevent parking outside the Esso and BP/M&S petrol stations on A40 at Denham
  • An upgrade (including provision for cyclists) and improved visibility of zebra crossing outside Stoke Mandeville Combined School
  • Speed Indicator Devices for use at Westbury, Quainton and Waddesdon
  • Improved visibility of School Hill/Werner Terrace junction at Charndon
  • A shared surface foot/cyclepath between Gaydon and the Freemantle Nursing Home
  • A pedestrian crossing on A422 at Westbury
  • Traffic calming measures at entrances to Water Stratford
  • Parking restrictions around bus stops on Brackley Lane at Calvert

Councillor Steve Broadbent, Cabinet Member for Transport said: "I welcome the fact that 17 different road safety and road improvement schemes will be delivered within Buckinghamshire from the available funding for the benefit of all road users. 

"The tranche was heavily oversubscribed but the schemes that will be funded will enhance overall road safety and, in almost all cases, provide substantial benefits to more vulnerable road users who are having to contend with increasing traffic volumes on our roads."
