A418 Corridor Improvements - July 2019
Buckinghamshire County Council (BCC) is consulting on junction and cycleway improvement works along the A418 Oxford Road Corridor in order to provide better journey time reliability, ease congestion, improve sustainable travel options and local air quality. This will be achieved through junction improvements to the Fowler Road/ Churchill Avenue junction; the installation of part time signals and an extended traffic island at the Aylesbury College/ Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School junction; and the construction of a staggered toucan crossing at the A41/ A418 roundabout. Real time passenger information units will be fitted at bus stops to provide up to date public transport information and a new bus shelter will be installed outside the Grammar School. New areas of shared cycleway and footways will be created to link existing routes. Traffic signals will be coordinated, pedestrian crossings will be upgraded with new and more efficient equipment, variable message signs will provide drivers with improved travel information, and cameras will monitor traffic flows so that adjustments can be made to traffic control and up to date accurate information provided to drivers.
· Consultation: The consultation will run from the 10th July 2019 to 9th August 2019.
· Public Event: Thursday 18th July, 2pm – 8pm, Aylesbury College, Oxford Road, Aylesbury, Bucks HP21 8PD
The A418 Oxford Road is a key route into and out of Aylesbury, with a high volume of traffic causing daily congestion, particularly at peak times. To address congestion issues, and support economic growth, a number of improvements along Oxford Road were identified and formed part of a successful funding bid to Government in 2017. Investigation work has been underway since the funding award in late 2017 to design and test options to determine a suite of improvements along the Oxford Road. The scheme has been funded with £2.19 million from a successful bid to the National Productivity Investment Fund with the remaining £0.5 million of the project’s £2.69 million budget being provided from local developer
