TfB preparing for disruption of Handy Cross M40 junction weekend closures


Transport for Buckinghamshire is preparing for the disruption to traffic from the weekend closures of the A404/M40 Handy Cross roundabout from mid-February. Highways England will be carrying out resurfacing on the roundabout over three consecutive weekends, from 9pm Friday night to 5am Monday morning on the weekends of Friday 16th February, 23rd February, and 2nd March. The resurfacing works require a full closure of the roundabout, as well as the approach roads leading to the junction.


While these are not TfB works, they are preparing for the disruption to traffic that the closure is likely to cause in surrounding areas and have placed an embargo on any other non-essential road works in a 10 mile radius of the M40 works. Additional traffic management will also be used on diversion routes, particularly the smaller roads less well equipped to deal with heavy traffic.


About the works:
Highways England is carrying out the resurfacing to ensure this essential junction remains in a safe condition. The existing road surface will be dug out and fully resurfaced, the traffic signals and detection loops will be replaced, and anti-skid material will be laid at selected areas of the roundabout.  During the closures various clearly signed diversions will be in place, primarily using the M40 junctions 3 and 5, the A40, Wooburn Green and Little Marlow. Emergency services will have access through the closure, as will TfB gritters should they need to get through to salt the roads, although gritting routes have been adjusted to minimise disruption. 


The X80 and 800/850 bus routes  – which serve High Wycombe, Marlow and Reading  – will be diverted during the weekend closures, and National Express will not be serving the Handy Cross Coachway during the closure. Details can be found on the bus service disruption page on the county council website.


TfB will be collaborating with Highways England to make use of the road closures on the approach roads, and carry out maintenance works such as small scale resurfacing, gully clearing, sign cleaning, and street lighting repairs.


If you have any questions or would like to know about the works, you can contact Highways England on 0300 123 5000 or email them at info@highwaysengland.co.uk. TfB have set up a webpage with FAQs about the closure, bus information, and diversion information and maps. Visit www.buckscc.gov.uk/handycrossclosure
