Highway, Footpath and Cycle Path Updates

Highway Works 

Both Cheddington Road and Glebe Close are due to receive extensive patching and repair as part of Transport for Bucks Severe Weather program of works.   The former should be complete in October (road closure will be in place) and then the white lines will be renewed.   Glebe Close should follow before Christmas.

 Cycle Path along Northfield Road 

Herts County Council has now received the funding contribution from Taylor Wimpey via Bucks County Council and are now making good progress on plans for the cycle path down to Tring station.   There are still some hurdles to overcome and funding to secure, but they hope that it may be installed within the next 18 months – 2 years.

Path to Marsworth

Unfortunately this has suffered a further delay.   The majority of this initiative falls within the control of Marsworth Parish Council who had hoped to submit a bid for New Homes Bonus funding in September 2014, but this did not occur.  They now hope to prepare a bid for the next round of funding in September 2015.   In the meantime, Pitstone parish council is looking to see if there are alternative ways to get the Pitstone stretch of this footpath installed, which will run from Westfield Road up to the railway bridge and are currently working with Transport for Bucks to investigate options.
