Information Roadshow on Whitehouse Underpass Works – arranged by Milton Keynes Council

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Over 6500 new homes will be built in the Western Expansion Area (WEA), as well as employment land, open green spaces, parks, retail, leisure and new schools. With any new developments, the right highway infrastructure is needed. The new homes across Whitehouse and Fairfields are becoming occupied with residents. We need to ensure that there are safe crossing points for residents and cyclists. A toucan crossing is now in place between Fairfields and Fullers Slade and another one is being built on the H4 between Crownhill and Whitehouse.

The next part of the development is the building of an underpass between Two Mile Ash and Whitehouse known as the ‘Whitehouse Underpass.’ This major engineering project will mean some disruption and road closures but there will be advance warning and full diversions in place. The road closures are currently in place until work on the Whitehouse Underpass is completed in March 2020.

MK Council are hosting a series of public roadshow events for people to come along and find out more information about the scheme, traffic management and diversions.

Until end of Fayre

The Parish Council has responded to concerns by the grounds maintenance team about the increasing amount of dog waste being left around the pitches. This is a health hazard for them and all the athletes who use the pitches.

Thank you to everyone who does clear up after their pet, we know the majority of owners are responsible about clearing up. Please do encourage other dog walkers to use these new bins. Help us to keep the sports ground a healthy environment for everyone.

V4 Pedestrian Crossings

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Milton Keynes Council has written to the Parish Council to provide you with information about the construction of the new underpass between Whitehouse and Two Mile Ash on the V4, Watling Street. This scheme is part of the Western Expansion Area (WEA) pedestrian crossings. It is anticipated that the construction works will commence on the week of 13 May until December 2019. This is a major engineering project with many major services and utilities which will be required to be diverted. Anglian Water will also be constructing a new pipeline along the V4 from the H3 to H4. MKCouncil are also working with L&Q Estates (previously known as Gallagher Estates) to support the next phase of Western Expansion Area. To enable all of these works, the road between Crownhill roundabout (H4) and Fairfields roundabout (H3) will be closed during this period. The current redway between this stretch will also be diverted. These will be reviewed throughout the works to minimise any disruption. MKCouncil will be holding roadshows, where residents can come and see plans and ask any questions. These will be held at the following venues:

Friday 3 May 2019 14.30- 16.30 Whitehouse School
Wednesday 8 May 2019 14:30-16:30 Two Mile Ash School
Thursday 9 May 2019 14:30-16:30 Hilltops Medical Centre
Saturday 11 May 2019 10.00-12.00 Sainsbury’s, Shenley Church End

Further updates of the construction programme and plans will be published on this webpage
