Roadworks coming to A322 roundabout
December 14, 2011
Roadworks to improve safety and reduce congestion at Bracknell’s Horse and Groom roundabout start next month.
The approach to the roundabout on the A322 Bagshot Road will be widened and redesigned, the road will be resurfaced and new lighting will be installed.
Temporary traffic lights will be in place during the 18-week scheme but most of the work will be carried out during off-peak hours between 9.30am and 4pm Monday to Friday.
The final stage of the project will take about a week when the road will be closed for some nights to allow contractors to re-surface and re-line the entire roundabout.
Bev Hindle, chief officer for planning and transport at Bracknell Forest Council, said: “The council would like to apologise in advance to any motorist who finds their journeys are disrupted by the roadworks while we make improvements.”
Councillor Mary Ballin, executive member for planning and transportation, said: “This is a major investment to improve the capacity and safety of this junction and to help alleviate congestion.”
