Construction of the permanent road network in and around High Wycombe Station commenced in early January. Some of the roadworks will be completed within the construction site boundary, however changes to the active road network are also required.
The roadworks, which will take about six months to complete, will include:
- upgrade of a section of Dundas Road (north and south of the station)
- a new roundabout at the intersection of Dundas and Maida Vale roads
- a new T-intersection along Maida Vale Road
- a new section of road linking Ibis Place and Sultana Road West
- access roads for buses to the station.
View a map outlining external and internal roadworks.
The following road closure is currently in place:
- Maida Vale Road between Dundas Road and Everitt Place. Access to homes and businesses will remain open to local traffic. Please follow traffic management signage in the area.
While every effort is made to minimise disruption to residents, a range of earthmoving equipment has to be used, and construction noise and some vibration is expected. We apologise for any disruption caused.
With 626 solar panels installed and an area of more than 1300 square metres covered, it's time to tick off another big job at High Wycombe Station. The sea of blue complements the rusty red colours of the station's main roof, while the 275kW system is designed to generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 50-60 households.
Within the station buildings finishing touches are the current focus, ranging from installation of sanitary ware, lights, handrails and balustrades, to fitting internal doors.
At concourse and platform levels terrazzo tiling works are nearing completion, with the current focus on installation of tactile paving. Tactile tiles are textured ground surface indicators that assist pedestrians who are vision impaired.
At the northern end of the site the multi-deck car park structure and ground level asphalting is now complete, with fit-out works ongoing.
