The addition of a new pedestrian refuge island on Gatehouse Road and a new bus shelter on Bicester Road. Works were initially due to begin on the widening of the end of February but is now due to start on Monday 25th January.

The Bucks Herald’s Thomas Bamford reports:


Buckinghamshire Council Cabinet Member for Transport, Nick Naylor said: “The work had been scheduled to start at the end of February, however given the reduced traffic levels as a result of the latest Covid-19 lockdown, it made sense to start earlier.” Nick continued, “The access works are expected to take around seven months to complete and every effort will be made to keep disruption to a minimum both for motorists and local businesses.”

Fellow Cabinet Member Steve Bowles, responsible for Town Centre Regeneration added: “This is another important investment for Aylesbury and its economy. Local people will know this site has been unused for many years, so it’s great to see the start of its new development, together with the jobs and prosperity the new Sainsbury’s store will bring to the town, particularly at this most difficult and testing time.”

Sainsbury’s Property Director, Patrick Dunne said: “We’re grateful for the local support for our new supermarket and we’re looking forward to welcoming our customers through the doors. This state-of-the-art store will provide the community with a safe, fresh and convenient shopping destination. We thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we work to finish the store and the surrounding infrastructure as quickly and safely as possible.”
