Overflow car park traffic flow improvements

Published on: 31/01/2020

Traffic flow and safety improvements have been made to our overflow car park at Western Avenue.

Why?

Last year, in consultation with the Travel Forum and following a review of the traffic data, we were aware that the overflow exit to Western Avenue was becoming a short cut from Park Drive.

We saw that traffic was speeding through to Western Avenue, which was becoming a hazard, especially in the summer when the area was being used for a larger Wandering Feast and games area on the grass.

What’s been done?

The access and exit from the overflow car park is now two way onto Jubilee Avenue. A temporary barrier has been installed with new lines painted so it’s clear.

The new traffic flows will be monitored.

Veronica Reynolds, sustainable transport advisor, Milton Park said: “The improvements we have made are to stop cars using the overflow exit as a short cut which has been adding to the traffic joining Park Drive from Western Avenue, effectively causing congestion along Park Drive. Fast for a few but causing delays for the majority and not safe for other road users.

“Our initial modelling work last year demonstrated that closing this road may help with the congestion along Park Drive. We will be monitoring the changes very closely for any major problems.

“Thank you for your patience while these improvements are being made and to the Travel Forum members for their continued support and input on mobility related matters.”
