The Little Brickhill Bypass
Building the bypass
It is estimated that over 20,000 vehicles use the A5 at Little Brickhill everyday, so despite Telfords improvement, it was with great relief that the village welcomed the news that construction of the village bypass was to commence in 1991.
Children from High Ash School took a keen interest in the construction of their bypass in 1992, and a very good relationship was built up between the school and the constructors. Talks on the construction were given by the engineers at the school and all children, staff and governors were given the opportunity to visit the site to look at the way the environmental impact was reduced. The children provided drawings of what they saw on their visits to decorate the site office: prizes were provided for the best by the Resident Engineer!
