traffic
The bypass is expected to ease congestion in the village
A 32m bypass for a Buckinghamshire village opens on Friday - 40 years after it was first planned.

Transport minister Tony McNulty officially opens the new A41 Aston Clinton bypass near Aylesbury on Friday.

During the visit the minister will unveil a plaque naming the new bridge that takes the bypass over the Grand Union canal.

Mr McNulty will be accompanied by a pupil from the Aston Clinton school who won a competition to name the bridge.

The minister will officially open the road by being driven in an Aston Martin through a ribbon and along the bypass.

It is hoped the new road will ease the rush hour congestion in the village and improve road safety.
