Please note: The initial website and letters referred to Bowl Barrel Way and not the correct Bowl Barrow Way. The attached letter below refers to the correct name.  The Traffic Regulation Order, Notices and Statement of Reasons are unaffected by this change.

The proposal

The A355 Bowl Barrow Way (Beaconsfield relief road) is the culmination of a long-term aspiration to improve north-south connectivity in Buckinghamshire, reduce congestion on the A355 and at the London End roundabout, Beaconsfield, as well as provide a more suitable route for HS2 construction traffic - was opened in April 2022.

The aim of the review is to formalise the speed limit and a clearway to stop parking in accordance with the planning conditions.

We invite local residents and other interested parties to let us have your views on the plans below. No legal decision has been made at this point. The proposals vary at different locations and include:


  • A rural clearway on the full length of A355 Bowl Barrow Way (between its northern junction with A355 Amersham Road to its southern junction with A40 Pyebush Roundabout)
  • A 40mph speed limit on A355 Bowl Barrow Way from its junction with A355 Amersham Road southwards to the first street lighting column approximately 103 metres north of the roundabout with Minerva Way (this restriction is already signed on the ground). The subsequent length of A355 Bowl Barrow Way from this point to A40 Pyebush Roundabout is 30mph due to the presence of street lighting.
