Junctions to be improved in Maidenhead
Published: Thursday, 28th February 2019
Funding for improved road junctions around Maidenhead has been approved by Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
The significant investment of £4.2 million from the Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) alongside investment of £1.1 million from the council will see six roundabouts in Maidenhead improved as part of the regeneration programme in the town.
The work will start in autumn 2019 and follows a route from the Braywick Road roundabout as you leave the M4 through to the A4 Bath Road before you exit the borough across Maidenhead Bridge. The first roundabout on this corridor for upgrading will be at Stafferton Way.
In addition, the roundabouts on the A4 corridor at Kidwells Park and Castle Hill will be improved as part of this package.
Councillor Phill Bicknell, lead member for highways, transport and Windsor, says: “I am delighted that we have been successful in another bid to the LEP.
“This is important work that will make the journey through Maidenhead much easier by changing the way the roundabouts work with the flow of traffic and the anticipated increase of traffic with the regeneration programme.
“The level of work required significant investment and I am pleased that the LEP recognised that work and how this will benefit residents and commuters.”
The junctions which will be upgraded and improved are:
- A308(M)/A308/A330/ The Binghams (Braywick roundabout)
- A308/Rushington Avenue/Stafferton Way roundabout
- A308/A4 Castle Hill roundabout
- A4/B4447 (Cookham Road roundabout)
- A4/B3028 (Oldfield Road roundabout)
- A4/A4094 Ray Mead Road (Guards Club roundabout)
Councillor Simon Dudley, leader of the council and lead member for Maidenhead regeneration and Maidenhead, says: “I am delighted that we have received this funding and the work will help the town as it grows through the regeneration programme. It is important that we ensure the infrastructure is in place before the housing developments are completed.”
