Road resurfacing and night closures

Published: 13 May 2019

Resurfacing work starts this week in Cippenham with residents and commuters being warned of road closures while work is taking place.

The surface of Burnham Lane between the railway bridge, near the junction with Buckingham Avenue, and the A4 Bath Road will be replaced.

The work is set to begin at 9am on Tuesday 14 May and carry on until 3.30pm.

The resurfacing works will then resume at 8pm and continue through the night to minimise impact on motorists throughout the entire road network. The night work will take place between 8pm and 5am on Tuesday 14 May, Wednesday 15 May and Thursday 16 May. Work is expected to be complete by 5am on Friday 17 May.

Residents along Burnham Lane are being warned there will be limited access during the work due to vehicles having to be escorted and that disruption will be kept to a minimum. Letters have been sent to affected households.

The night time works is expected to be in place for approximately three days. During the resurfacing works attempts will be made to keep noise and vibration to a minimum.

Traffic management operatives will be on site to advise and assist members of the public at any closure points, and at no time will access be denied. Vehicles requiring access to properties will be guided in after everyone on site has been notified.

We apologise in advance for any delays that may be caused by the works.
