Construction of New Roundabout: Phase 2 (03 May to December 2022)

From Tuesday 03 May the Construction of a new roundabout on H9 Groveway will be starting, to carry out the construction phase safely it will be necessary to close this section of the H9 Groveway until the scheme is completed in December 2022, this includes the diversion of six major power supply cables by Western Power Distribution which is being coordinated into the scheme.

The Open University have agreed to open up their Walton Drive access road during this time. A diversion route will be in place and clearly signed to direct traffic and bus services to use either the H10 Bletcham Way or H8 Standing Way grid roads.

A main gas pipe is also located underground so for safety reasons, no mechanical diggers may be used, and the area around it must be completely hand dug instead which will take longer.

Phase 2 is the main construction part of the scheme and includes:

  • Installing a new roundabout with signage, road markings, traffic islands.
  • Upgrading the existing street lighting and drainage
  • Resurfacing sections of the existing H9 Groveway approaching the new roundabout

A plan is below to show scope of the work.
