ROAD TRAFFIC REGULATION ACT 1984 - SECTION 14(1)(a) AND (7) THE M40 MOTORWAY (JUNCTIONS 1 - 6) AND THE A40 TRUNK ROAD (DENHAM, BUCKINGHAMSHIRE) (TEMPORARY RESTRICTION AND PROHIBITION OF TRAFFIC) ORDER 202
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Highways England Company Limited(a) intends to make an Order on the M40 Motorway and the A40 Trunk Road in the Districts of South Buckinghamshire and Wycombe in the County of Buckinghamshire and the District of South Oxfordshire in the County of Oxfordshire. This is to enable traffic detector loop installation and routine maintenance works between Junctions 1 and 6 to be carried out in safety. The works are expected to take place overnight (8pm - 8am) between Tuesday 1 June 2021 and Wednesday 1 September 2021. The works would be carried out in phases using carriageway and slip road closures, hard shoulder running and a temporary mandatory speed restriction. Works may not run consecutively and there may be gaps of 1 to 2 weeks between activities. The restrictions and prohibitions would be applied only to the extent that is necessary for particular works to be undertaken and would apply during such times and to such extent as would be indicated by traffic signs. The effect of the Order on the M40 would be to -
1. impose, for 24 hours daily, a speed limit of 50 miles per hour on the -
- southbound carriageway from the entry slip road at J6 to the exit slip road at J1, and
- northbound carriageway from the exit slip road at J1 to the entry slip road at J6, and
2. close the-
- southbound carriageway from the entry slip road at J6 to the exit slip road at J1,
- northbound carriageway from the exit slip road at J1 to the entry slip road at J6,
- northbound entry and southbound exit slip roads at J1,
- northbound and southbound entry slip roads at J1A from the clockwise carriageway of the M25 at J16, and the southbound exit slip road at J1A to both the clockwise and anti-clockwise carriageways of the M25 at J16,
- northbound and southbound entry slip roads at J1A from the anti-clockwise carriageway of the M25 at J16, and the northbound exit slip road at J1A to both the clockwise and anti-clockwise carriageways of the M25 at J16,
- northbound exit and southbound entry slip roads at J3, northbound and southbound entry and exit slip roads at J2, J4
and J5 including the dedicated northbound entry slip road from the A404 at J4, and the A40 Denham Roundabout between the entry and exit slips roads to and from the northbound and southbound A40 and M40 at J1 - diverting traffic around the opposite way on Denham Roundabout to continue their journey.
When a slip road is closed traffic wishing to enter or leave the M40 would be diverted on or off the motorway at the nearest open slip road and return to the original junction via the opposite carriageway to continue their journey, and for carriageway closures traffic would be diverted off and back onto the motorway via the exit and entry slip roads.
The temporary speed restriction (which would not apply to emergency service or special forces vehicles), and closures (which would not apply to works, emergency service or traffic officer vehicles) and diversion routes would be clearly indicated by traffic signs.
The Order would come into force on 1 June 2021 and continue in force until 1 September 2021.
