A new access road to an incinerator which is currently under construction is expected to take HGVs off village roads.

Recycling and waste management company FCC Environment has opened a new road from the A41 to its landfill site in Calvert and the adjacent Greatmoor energy from waste (EfW) incinerator which is being built.

The 4.5km access road has been constructed by leading civil engineering company Jones Bros along a disused railway track, including three road bridges which all required improvement works.

From Sunday, September 7, HGVs will no longer be allowed to use Brackley Lane to access the landfill site and the incinerator construction site.

Landfill vehicles will need to use the lane until September, as FCC Environment requires a further month to relocate the landfill offices.

In April 2013, FCC Environment won the contract to treat Buckinghamshire’s non-recyclable household waste, including the development of the Greatmoor EfW facility. Construction of the plant started in September and FCC Environment says, when operational, it will produce 22MW of energy – enough to power 36,000 homes.
