Work to start on A421 Buckingham – junction with Tingewick Road
Work will start on Monday [6 August 2018] on the construction of a new four arm roundabout on the A421 Buckingham bypass at the junction with Tingewick Road. The move is to help improve access and traffic flow from the nearby Tingewick Road housing development.Developer Barratt Homes is funding the work to allow traffic to jointhe A421 at what is currently a three way junction.
A detailed transport assessment to help reduce the impact of the development and alleviate congestion was carried out before work could commence.Work is expected to last from August 2018 until the run up to Christmas 2018, during which time there will be a 30 mph speed restriction and temporary traffic signals.
Mark Shaw, Deputy Leader and Transport Cabinet Member, said: “The need to consider traffic flow strongly influenced where the housing development could be located.The contractor Tamdown[who are working on behalf of Barratt Homes] will try to minimise disruption to the travelling public as much as possible – but we are still advising road users to allow more time for their journey until the work is completed.”
The new roundabout, when finished, will act as a gateway into Buckingham and provide opportunity for improved signage. Further information on the build and road works can be found on the developer’s website http://www.barratt-tingewickroad.co.uk/
