Closed 26 Sep 2022

Opened 30 Aug 2022

Overview

Buckinghamshire Council logo

We will be introducing traffic calming on the A418 Aylesbury Road, Bierton to make the road a less attractive through-traffic route and encourage through-traffic to use the new roads within the Kingsbrook development.

The scheme is being delivered as part of the obligations set out within the agreed Section 106 agreement relevant to the Kingsbrook development and will be constructed and funded by Barratt David Wilson Homes.

Barratt David Wilson Homes have previously undertaken informal consultation with Bierton Parish Council and Buckinghamshire Council and the plans are as a result of those discussions.

As well as encouraging through-traffic to use the new roads within the Kingsbrook development, the scheme also aims to provide pedestrian, cycle, and bus stop improvements by:

  • Reducing the width of the road at proposed locations to slow vehicle speeds
  • Providing people safer places to cross the road
  • Making it easier and quicker for passengers to board/alight a bus
  • Providing parking spaces for the church

We want feedback on the proposed locations and types of traffic calming measures from residents, local businesses and those who use the A418 Aylesbury Road, Bierton for travel. We will also contact statutory consultees.
