Update on the Culworth Road closure, Chipping Warden

Update on the Culworth Road closure, Chipping Warden Message from EKFB working on behalf of HS2 As you may be aware, we have Culworth Road in Chipping Warden closed at the moment, which was due to re-open on 31 March. We had intended to get the road open before the Easter weekend, but this has not been possible. We require the road to remain closed for vehicles, until the middle / end of next week. Apologies for this. We have, however, opened part of our closure to allow for pedestrian access. Walkers will find that the barriers have been repositioned slightly, to allow pedestrians through, but keep the main highway blocked for vehicle traffic. Please take care when walking along

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
