The Council’s highways team have been awarded £3.9m of government funding after a successful bid to upgrade the A509/A422. Nineteen projects across the country will receive a share of £75 million of government investment for essential road maintenance including Milton Keynes Council.The upgrade of the A509/A422 will help to support the East-West corridor transport links to major roads like the M1, A428 and A421.
Cracked road

 

The upgrade work will cost a total of £4.9m to implement. The work will be carried out over the next 12 months and will include:

Grid road
  • Extensive road resurfacing
  • Road surface treatments
  • White line painting
  • Safety improvements such as barriers at the side of the road
  • New signage Renew key route signage along the length to improve wayfinding
  • Improved drainage systems to help cope with higher volumes of surface water and reduce flooding

 

Benefits & Outcomes

The principle objective of the scheme bid is to reset the lifecycle of the A509 to year 0 so that it will enable the authority to manage the road into the future in line with its new Highway Asset Management Strategy (HAMS) and that it can accommodate and withstand the projected growth of  Milton Keynes into the next two decades. Implementing this preventative approach  would deliver the following benefits and outcomes.

  • Improved carriageway surface to increase skid resistance and eradicate potholes
  • Mitigate flooding through improved drainage
  • Upgrade lighting to improve safety and reduce energy costs and emissions
  • Improve carriageway visibility through lining and new road studs
  • Bring traffic islands and signing up to current standards, replacing damaged assets
