Dear Resident,

As part of the East West Rail project, we will be carrying out a programme of highway repairs and road
reinstatement works on Herds Hill.  To carry out these works in a safe manner and to minimise disruption on
the local community, we will be closing Herds Hill in two phases:

Phase 1 – The section of Herds Hill that connects to Steeple Claydon will be closed from Thursday 7th September to Thursday 21st September 2023.

UPDATE:  20th September 2023

We regret to inform you that the road closure will need to be extended, the new anticipated reopening date for phase 1 is now Tuesday 26th September 2023.

We will do our best to keep disruption to a minimum.  We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by these

Phase 2 – The section of Herds Hill that connects to Padbury will be closed from Friday 22nd September to
Friday 13th October 2023.

UPDATE: 20th September 2023

Please be advised that phase 2 of the Herds Hill closure will now start on Wednesday 27th September 2023.

We appreciate that this extension may cause inconvenience to residents and businesses in the area and we are truly sorry for the impact caused whilst we complete these works.

Our team is committed to minimising disruption as much as possible during the remainder of this road closure. Your co-operation is greatly appreciated during this time.

To carry out these works in a safe and secure manner we will be closing the road to pedestrians and vehicles
throughout the closure.

To access houses, frontages and businesses along this road, please follow the diversion in place. Access for
emergency services, school and community buses will also be maintained via the signed diversion in place.
