In January the Council announced it would be cleaning around 100 road signs across the city. This clean up began a few weeks ago with road signs along the V (vertical) grid roads. The work was carried out by the Council's contractor Serco and took around three weeks to complete.

The next stage in the Fixing the Links (FtL) project began on Thursday 17 March, with the removal of the wall next to Locke Road in Bletchley and resurfacing an adjacent section of Duncombe Street.


Railings will be installed where the wall once stood which will ensure pedestrian safety whilst keeping the town centre visible.

Highways officers along with Ringway staff worked overnight in March when 60mm of rain fell in a 24 hour period causing flash flooding in MK.


A few roads, mainly rural had to be closed due to excess water on the roads making them dangerous for drivers to use. Many of these were only closed for a brief period however with the network back to normal very quickly.

Street lighting and illuminated street furniture along the Western Flank of Milton Keynes will be upgraded to energy saving LED lanterns. The brightness of the lights will still be the same but the amount of energy used will be reduced.
