At the start of the month work began to install a signalised junction at Avebury Boulevard/Grafton Gate in Central Milton Keynes.
Firstly, the left turn into the car park area near Argos and the former Toys R Us site was closed off and a verge constructed. The existing roundabout has been removed and groundworks are now taking place as there are a number of utilities under this area.
Once completed, the scheme will provide a new lane on Grafton Gate (northbound) to help ease congestion at the South Grafton roundabout and will also improve road safety at this location as the traffic lights will control the traffic flow.
This scheme should be completed by 30 November 2021 depending on weather conditions. A diversion route is in place whilst these works are carried out and there is signage in place for any road users to follow. CCTV has been installed at the site to keep it safe and secure whilst the works are ongoing.
