Pinewood Studios to deliver a new shared Footway/Cycleway along Pinewood Road
Sir Robert McAlpine has been appointed by Pinewood Studios to construct a new shared footway/cycleway as part of the expansion and redevelopment of the Studio.
The new footway/cycleway will be 3.5m wide and around 1.3km in length and run from 5 Points Roundabout to the entrance of Pinewood Studios. Improvement works to the existing highway, footpaths and drainage network will also be delivered, along with measures to improve highways safety.
Following discussions with local residents and Iver Parish Council, we are pleased to confirm that the works will start in April 2019 and last for approximately 20 weeks.
We have submitted a traffic management plan to Buckinghamshire County Council's Highways Department for their approval and will be in touch with more details as soon as the plan is agreed.
There is likely to be some disruption along Pinewood Road with temporary traffic lights in place whilst works are undertaken. The proposed management plan involves using 2- and 3-way traffic lights in small sections. It may be necessary to re-route traffic away from 5 Points Roundabout towards the end of the construction period, but further information will be released about how this will affect the local community, Pinewood Studios staff and tenants once the traffic management plan has been approved.
Details of any diversion routes will be provided to the local community in advance, alongside 'advanced notice warning boards' two weeks before the works begin. The boards will contain the 24-hour contact for Sir Robert McAlpine's contractor and confirmed dates. Updates will also be available on the Parish Council's website.
