During this phase of the scheme a shuttle service will run between Turvey, Lavendon and Olney.

Phase two runs from Monday, October 16 to Friday, November 3 where there will be a full road closure from 8pm to 6am for resurfacing, between the council’s boundary and Jack’s Lane.

Alternative transport will be available and the council says it’s working with Stagecoach to find solutions for bus users.

Councillor Jim Weir, portfolio holder for environment, highways and transport, said: “We assure you that every effort has been made to minimise disruption during the construction period.”
