Current schemes

We design and develop schemes to plan for future developments and traffic flow. We also look at how road safety can be improved where issues have been identified. 

These are some of the projects we are currently working on:

Tickford Bridge refurbishment

July - November 2022

The famous iron bridge in Newport Pagnell dates back to 1810 and is Grade I Listed Ancient Monument which means that any works however minor, by law must be pre-approved by Historic England and the government and carried out by specialists.

We'll be carrying out some general maintenance to the structure of the bridge and repainting it during the summer months.

 

New H9 Groveway roundabout

February - December 2022

The Highways team were commissioned by the Milton Keynes Development Partnership (MKDP) to design, plan and install a roundabout on the H9 Groveway near Walton Drive. A new development called Walton Manor is being built at this location on land owned by MKDP so there will be additional traffic accessing and exiting the H9 plus existing traffic going to the Open University campus. The vegetation clearance began in February 2022 with the main construction works starting in March 2022. The roundabout will be completed by December 2022. 

The groundworks are complex due to the large amount of utility services under the verge which include a main gas pipe. For safety, only hand digging is allowed around this pipe.

 

Zebra Crossing - Hanslope

June - July 2022

Work will start to install a new zebra crossing works on Long Street, Hanslope near Kitelee Close on Monday 27 June 2022. The works should take around 5 weeks to complete. This will include:

  • Construction of a zebra crossing
  • Replace the pedestrian guard rail
  • Improve the existing lighting
  • Realign the kerbs next to the crossing
  • Resurface the road and footway around the crossing

The diversion route will be:

Hartwell Road, Forest Road B526 through Stoke Goldington and Tathall End to Park Road and vice versa.
