Changes might be made to busy Aylesbury junction

Published by the Mix96 News Team at 12:58pm 12th March 2019.

After multiple crashes at a busy Aylesbury junction, improvements and alterations will be made. 

The Stocklake junction, is currently the responsibility of the Developer, Barratt Homes. 

A number of people have been in contact with Mix96 calling for changes to be made as the traffic is a "source of frustration". 

After a Road Safety Audit, there were a number of recommendations and before Buckinghamshire County Council adopt the junction, improvements will be made. 

One person, who wishes to remain anonymous, has suggested a number of things that need to improve.

  • Narrow Lanes; considering the amount of HGV traffic
  • Painting of lines isn't clear
  • Short lane on Douglas Road is not utilised
  • Left filter lanes are poorly implemented

Cabinet Member for Transportation, Mark Shaw said:

"We are aware of a number of damage only collisions since the junction opened although we have not received any formal complaints.

"Although we don't receive data on damage only collisions, we are aware of one slight injury collision that occurred which, from the Police report, was not attributed to the design of the junction."

"The junction was designed by the developer to accommodate the more significant traffic demands predicted once the Eastern link Road North has been completed and opened to traffic as part of the Kingsbrook development.

"The anticipated traffic demands meant that the junction needed to be large with multiple lanes.

"An independent Road Safety Audit has been undertaken, which has put forward a number of recommendations.

"As a result we have not yet adopted the junction, which remains the responsibility of the Developer, Barratt Homes.

"Discussions and monitoring are ongoing with the Developer, and alterations to this junction will take place before we formally adopt the junction."
