Town traffic relief moves one step nearer

An end may be in sight for notorious traffic jams trundling into Aylesbury from the south and clogging the town centre.

Buckinghamshire Council will start work shortly on Phase 2 of the South East Aylesbury Link Road scheme.

This will see construction of 1.1 miles of dual carriageway, including three new roundabout junctions designed to ease congestion in the town and provide an easier route for traffic to flow without going through the town centre.

The new link road will join the A413 Wendover Road with the Stoke Mandeville Relief Road, being constructed by HS2.

Phase 2 will connect the B4443 Lower Road to a new roundabout junction with both the Stoke Mandeville Relief Road and future South West Aylesbury Link Road.

Council leader Martin Tett said: ‘To grow and thrive, Buckinghamshire needs the right infrastructure in place, so it’s great news that we’ve been able to approve the delivery of Phase 2 of the South East Aylesbury Link Road.’

Work recently started on the Wendover Road roundabout and Phase 2 works are scheduled to start in March 2024.
