V4 Pedestrian Crossings
The Western Expansion Area (WEA) is situated between Crownhill and Stony Stratford.
Once completed it will include 6,550 new homes, employment, green spaces and parks, retail and leisure units and schools. To faciliate this new area we are putting in pedestrians crossings and an underpass for safety and are working with utility companies to install the necessary key infrastructure such as water pipes and cabling.
Latest update: June 2020
The V4 underpass site has now been reopened following Government guidance for work sites in England.
