We would like to hear your comments about our proposal to ban right turn manoeuvres at a number of junctions on the H4 Dansteed Way in Two Mile Ash and Great Holm.
To view the plan showing the proposed changes to the current layout of the H4 between the V4 Watling Street and V5 Great Monks Street click here.
This stretch of the H4 Dansteed Way has been identified after a history of collisions at The High Street, Two Mile Ash & Kensington Drive, Great Holm junctions.
The aim of the scheme is to provide a safer environment for vehicles travelling on the H4, and to provide safer exiting and access to the residential areas of Two Mile Ash and Great Holm. The scheme will also improve the current crossing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists at the Kensington Drive junction with the H4.
You can send us your feedback on these proposals as part of the informal consultation by 5pm on 15 August 2022.
We will then review all feedback sent to us and decide whether to proceed with a formal consultation.
After carefully reviewing all comments received during the consultation period and taking into consideration a key part of MKC’s responsibilities to help reduce accidents, Milton Keynes City Council will be proceeding with the closure of the right hand turns on H4 Dansteed Way to help improve road safety and prevent any further collisions.
Changes to the original proposal
- There will be no changes to the existing kerb line at Cornhill, Kensington Drive and The High Street junctions
- The redway on the south east side of the H4 will be re-routed into Kensington Drive to create a safer crossing point for pedestrians and cyclists
- Hazard marker posts will be installed in the centre of the carriageway to prevent any U-turn and right manoeuvres from occurring
- The layout to the Kensington Drive junction with the H4 has been amended to allow right turn manoeuvres for buses exiting Kensington Drive in the near future. However, this will only be possible if MKCC can ensure suitable enforcement of this movement is not abused by other motorists.
