On Friday 22nd April 2016 almost a hundred and twenty people attended a public exhibition at Beaconsfield Town hall to look at the maps and plans for the proposed A355 Relief Road.
The proposed road is planned to run east of Beaconsfield from a junction at Maxwell Road to the Pyebush roundabout on the A40.
Buckinghamshire County Council officers were on hand at the public exhibition to answer questions and they reported a positive response from residents about removing traffic from London End and relieving the town of commuters cars.
In Summer 2016 a planning application to build the road is due to be made and following approval, detailed design work will start. Tendering for construction will allow building work to begin in Spring 2018, aiming at completion in Spring 2019.
Buckinghamshire County Council Transport Cabinet Member Mark Shaw said: ‘We’ve been very pleased at the interest residents and businesses have shown. It’s an important scheme and we’re still open to feedback in the next few weeks as we head towards the detailed relief road planning application.
We only get one crack at a major schemes like this, and we want to make sure we get it right, which is why we’re listening to local residents and local groups who have good local knowledge that can help us avoid expensive errors.‘
