Road Closure for works to traffic signals at Brownlow Canal Bridge B488 Horton Road, Ivinghoe, LU7 9DY

On the 8th of October 2018 Buck CC plan to start work on the traffic signals at Brownlow Canal Bridge; this work is necessary to replace life expired equipment to refurbish the traffic signals and a road closure will be needed to provide safe working space.

The B488 will be closed between Station Road, Cheddington and High Street, Ivinghoe from 9.30am to 3pm Monday to Friday starting Monday 8th October to Tuesday 23rd October.

Access will be permitted to residents, businesses and visitors but only as far as the bridge, motor vehicles will not be allowed over the bridge.

The road will be open overnight and at weekends with temporary traffic lights.

The signed diversion route will use the A4146, B440 and B489 for both directions. A map of the road closure and diversion route is shown on the attached diagram.

The closure end date may be subject to change if works are delayed, for example by bad weather.

During these works there may be some delays and we are sorry for any inconvenience caused, if you should have any problems during these works please contact Bucks CC online at or in an emergency call 01296 382416.

What this will mean for residents is that the bridge will be open for the morning and evening commutes as well as for school buses. It will also be open all day at weekends. The bridge will be closed during the daytime Mon - Fri.

As and when we get any updates will will let you know.
