Message from EKFB on behalf of HS2 Traffic management on the A361 near Chipping Warden 22-26 January 2024 The week (22-26 January 2024) we will be carrying out utility survey work on the A361 near Chipping Warden.

Summary of the traffic management: A lane closure on the A361, controlled by traffic lights from Monday

HS2 – Wardington Update – Changes

HS2 - Wardington Traffic Update - Changes In the recent update the diversion route for the Wardington Road closures showed the wrong route on the PDF that was circulated. Apologies, as you know already, there is no access through the Edgcote Estate to Chipping Warden.   The correct diversion is through Wardington and I have amended our maps. Our construction traffic will not be using this route through Wardington, it is purely a diversion route for members of the public who aren’t familiar with the area.    I have attached an amended version of the 'lookahead' presentation to this email with the map change. The 1 day Wardington Road closure planned for 15 January has been cancelled.  The survey work planned
