Construction work has started on building a roundabout as part of the new A355 relief road in Beaconsfield.

The work, which will continue until mid January 2019, will involve temporary three way traffic lights will control daytime traffic on Friday 11th January 2019 and Monday 14th January 2019 from 9.30am to 3.30pm.

There will also be night closures from 7.30pm to 6.00am from Monday 14th January 2019 to Friday 18th January 2019 to  allow the roundabout surfacing to be laid.

The main road will reopen at 6.00am on Saturday 19th January 2019.

Before Christmas 2018 the foundations of the roundabout near Maxwell Road were laid, cable ducting installed and kerbs fitted.

Engineering team lays the foundation for the A355 roundabout.

Once surfacing is complete, traffic from the main A355 road will be diverted on to the new roundabout to make room for construction of a new link to connect Maxwell Road and Hyde Green to the main road.

Mark Shaw, Buckinghamshire County Council Deputy Leader and Transport Cabinet Member, said: ‘The roundabout is an important element of the relief road, and while it’s great to see work progressing, I hope everyone will bear with us while we lay the new surface.

The relief road improvement project is one of Buckinghamshire County Council’s priority schemes, with a £9.2 million budget, funded by £3.1m from the Local Transport Board (LTB) and a £6.05m grant from the Government’s Local Growth Fund through Buckinghamshire Thames Valley Local Enterprise Partnership (BTVLEP).
