This consultation is now closed and we are analysing responses. The outcome of the consultation will be published on this page in due course.
What is proposed?
As part of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead's commitment to investment in quality infrastructure that connects neighbourhoods and businesses and allows them to prosper, we are proposing to make improvements at the junction of the A308 with Holyport Road to optimise traffic flow and improve road safety for all road users.
The existing mini roundabout will be removed, and a traffic light system would be installed at the junction. Traffic from Maidenhead on the A308 will continue to have a second approach lane for traffic turning right into Holyport Road, with dedicated time within the light sequence for traffic to turn right.
Signalised crossings will be introduced at each set of traffic lights, to give better access to the bus stops and improved facilities for walking. The shared footway on the north side of the A308 will be upgraded to feature separate spaces for walking and cycling, and cycles will have access to join and leave this facility to/from Holyport Road.
Why are these changes needed?
The mini roundabout junction has reached its natural capacity and needs upgrading to keep traffic moving optimally and safely.
This proposed scheme will bring benefits to road users with better management of traffic movements at this junction helping to minimise the risk of conflicts, as well as creating safer and easier crossing points for walking and cycling – something the current roundabout does not have.
When would the work be undertaken?
If supported, it is proposed that the junction improvement works would start in summer 2023. The works will be timed so as to avoid taking place at the same time as any other works in the area.
