Update from Fusion on behalf of HS2 : Upcoming works at Amersham A404, Whielden Lane and A413
Work taking place – 18 May to 4 July 2020
are being undertaken by Fusion (HS2 Contractor) to provide safety and capacity
improvements for motorists, pedestrians and HS2 related traffic prior to the
commencement of construction on the Amersham HS2 vent shaft.
work will include installation of a traffic light controlled junction from
Whielden Lane onto the A404 and will necessitate a closure of the section of
Whielden Lane towards the junction with the A404
The closure will be in place 24 hours
a day from 18 May for a 7 week period until 4 July 2020.
A diversion route will be in place
along Whielden Street, The Broadway, Gore Hill to the A402 and A404. Access to the hospital will be maintained
throughout along Whielden Street from the Broadway and the Old Town.
Bus stops along Whielden Street and part of The
Broadway will not be in use during this time. Affected bus stops are shown in the
document below. The closest open bus stops will be on the A404 outside the
Chiltern Crematorium and on Gore Hill located between the A413 and The Broadway
understood Buckinghamshire Council is liaising with HS2 about the feasibility
of providing a shuttle bus for passengers between the nearby open bus- the
hospital for the duration of the works
Pedestrian / cycle way access will be maintained
throughout these junction works through the existing link path that crosses the
vent shaft site. This path links the A404 near to the crematorium entrance and
Whielden Street, near to the hospital entrance and A413 bypass overbridge.
