The South East Aylesbury Link Road project takes an important step forward next week (from 11 December) with work starting on a new roundabout on Wendover Road, Wendover.
The roundabout is another 'piece of the jigsaw' in moving this major infrastructure project forward in Buckinghamshire.
Buckinghamshire Council is co-ordinating and delivering the South East Aylesbury Link Road (SEALR) scheme with the project moving forward in two phases. SEALR will see the construction of 1.1 miles of dual carriageway including three new roundabout junctions designed to ease congestion in Aylesbury and provide an easier route for traffic to flow without going through the town centre.
The new link road will join the A413 Wendover Road with the B4443 Lower Road (SEALR Phase 1) and the B4443 Lower Road to a new roundabout junction (Phase 2) with both the Stoke Mandeville Relief Road (SMRR) and the South West Aylesbury Link Road (SWALR).
Buckinghamshire Council Leader Martin Tett said: "To grow and thrive, Buckinghamshire needs the right infrastructure in place so I was pleased to be able to give the approval on 30 October to go ahead with the next part of this key project. With significant preparatory works already completed and a substantial piece of the funding support from the Housing Infrastructure Fund in place, we are making a start on delivering this key piece of infrastructure. I look forward to watching the progress of further elements of the South East Aylesbury Link Road project in future."
Disruption will be kept to a minimum during the Wendover Road roundabout work, with traffic continuing to run both ways on narrower lanes while the work takes place. The work will be paused over Christmas from 22 December, restarting on 2 January.
