The proposal

Following on from South East Aylesbury Link Road (SEALR) Phase 1, we are putting forward a proposal for SEALR Phase 2. This second phase involves the creation of approximately 450 metres of dual carriageway and a new roundabout. It will connect the future Lower Road roundabout (part of SEALR Phase 1) westwards where the new roundabout will then connect to future road links such as the Stoke Mandeville Relief Road and the South West Aylesbury Link Road (SWALR).

Background

HS2 originally planned to deliver SEALR Phase 2 as part of the Stoke Mandeville Relief Road. The HS2 line will sever the A4010 resulting in its realignment as the Stoke Mandeville Relief Road. This road was planned as a single carriageway without a junction for the South West Aylesbury Link Road.

To ensure that the full Aylesbury Orbital can be achieved, Buckinghamshire Council has agreed to deliver this 450-metre section as a dual carriageway with a new roundabout. This is a relatively short length of additional dual carriageway. Dualling this stretch of road will avoid creating a pinch-point in the road network. We are stepping in because without this length being amended, further changes would be needed in future years, causing significant disruption during construction.

SEALR Phase 2 will be partly funded by HS2 and the remainder will come through contributions from nearby developments. Both phases of the project will be delivered as one programme of work.

What happens next?

Once the public feedback period is closed, we will review the comments and decide if we need to make any changes to the initial design and planning application. We expect to submit the planning application during the spring of 2021.

Dependent on planning application approval, we expect detailed design work to be complete by autumn 2021. Following that, construction should begin during the winter of 2021 and complete by spring 2023.
