The road over Ivinghoe Beacon will be closed for 3 nights, from 19:00 to 06:00, to allow the road to be resurfaced. The closure on the B489 will be from Beacon Road through to the roundabouts at the “Traveller Rest”.
The closures are on Thursday 19 July 1900 to 0600 on Friday 20; Friday 20th at 1900 until 0600 on Saturday 21st and from 1900 on Monday 23rd until 060 on Tuesday 24th.
The closure will affect the 0520 ex Aylesbury [although as this is close to 0600 the road will probably be open], the 1940 ex Aylesbury; the 1900 ex Luton Airport and the 2120 ex Luton Airport.
Diversion route from aylesbury direction via B489 as normal to just before the top of the beacon then right into Beacon Road, left onto the B4506, Ringshall Road, through Ringshall to the roundabout at Dagnall and left onto the A4146 to the Travellers Rest and then as normal. The reverse of this for journeys from Luton Airport.
Due to trees, no double deckers to be used.
