First off, Marlow Bridge will be shut to vehicles for 5 days from today – but only between the hours of of 10am and 3pm.
The sign in our photo can be seen by Chapel St, announcing the road will be closed from 5th Sep to the 24th! Sounds a bit dramatic, and doesn’t seem to agree to details on the Transport for Bucks website – although it has to be said detailed information is hard to come by.
According to the TFB twitter page, posted just earlier today “Resurfacing works start today (off peak 9.30am – 3pm) on A4155 Little Marlow Road, Chapel Street & Spittal Street, Marlow”

The work in the Chapel St area is part of Bucks CC’s work to fix the numerous potholes, and clearly needs doing. However, some local residents and businesses have concerns over the timing and lack of information. One local businessman contacted us to say
“This will no doubt bring complete chaos to the town and the timing couldn’t be any worse with schools restarting and people in general going back to work after the summer holidays. This will definitely have an impact on local businesses and residents alike. Apparently there will be no access to Liston Rd Car Park either. We’ve contacted the council on the number advertised on their notices and they been quite vague about what’s happening. Obviously the work needs to be done, but the council could have chosen a different time and be a bit more informative about their actual logistics.”
We will be keeping a close eye on developments, and will update the information here as needed!
