A33 works to start on August 7th

The planned improvements to and between Ringway, Crockford and Great Binfields roundabouts include:

  • Widening the existing approach roads
  • Widening of the roundabouts
  • Installing traffic signals on the roundabouts
  • Upgrading the existing pedestrian and cycle facilities
  • Upgrading and increasing the capacity of the local drainage system

The works will also include measures to address the root cause of localised flooding between the Crockford and Binfields roundabouts, with the adjacent pond under the railway bridge widened and lined to improve its capacity and help reduce instances of future flooding.

There is an opportunity to meet the construction team and view a presentation on the improvement works.  This will be taking place on Wednesday 2 August 2017, at Unit “Central 40” of the Chineham Business Park between the hours of 15:00 and 19:00.  If you are unable to attend this event, the display materials and contact details will be available to view at the scheme webpage.

Additional delays should be expected during the course of the works and residents and visitors should allow more time to complete their journeys. Every effort will be made to minimise the impact of the works and the following measures are being introduced to better inform travel and help reduce delay.

  • The existing number of traffic lanes will remain open during weekday peak times.
  • Full road closures will only be allowed on selected weekends or weekday night-times – and advanced notice will be given to residents and businesses.
  • Use of variable message signs to warn of congestion hot-spots
  • Use of CCTV cameras to better manage traffic with images accessible from the ROMANSE Website
