THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN THIS CONSULTATION HOWEVER PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED FOR RESPONSES.

As part of a commitment to improving road safety, and promoting walking and cycling, the borough is consulting with local residents on a proposal to introduce a new layout at the Mill Lane / Maidenhead Road / Parsonage Lane, Windsor junction. The existing roundabout will be removed, and a Cycle Optimised Protected Signals (CYCLOPS) junction would be installed.

WHAT IS BEING PROPOSED?

The proposed scheme is a 'Cycle Optimised Protected Signals' junction commonly known as 'CYCLOPS'. The new design as shown in the 'Cyclops Outline Design' document will completely separate people travelling on foot and by bicycle from motor traffic, reducing the possibility of collisions or conflict. People on foot can also get where they need to be in fewer stages due to shorter crossing time and with more space to wait than most junctions. Bicycles approach the junction from four ‘arms’, converging onto a cycle track which completely encircles the junction, allowing cyclists to make a right turn while being protected from traffic, and to complete the manoeuvre in one movement (dependent on signal timings). This junction design will make journeys safer, easier, and smoother for those cycling or walking without impacting negatively on any other modes.

HOW WILL IT BE DELIVERED?

The proposed development is estimated to start in early summer 2023.

During delivery, disruption from works will be minimised, and the junction will remain open whilst work takes place on the footways and verges. Temporary traffic lights will be in use at some times.

The work will take place in six steps starting with preparatory works, then construction would be carried out in four phases, before the final surfacing work.

Overnight road closures will be needed at two specific points in the project, firstly to remove and replace the existing roundabout and crossings with the new crossing points and additional traffic lane, and secondly to resurface the road. The road will remain open during the days and at all other times during works.

Once a decision is made following the end of the consultation, detailed information of full schedule and duration of works will be available on the RBWM website, and on roadside notices when dates are confirmed.

Further information:

  • Document A: Which roads will be closed during overnights works?
  • Document B: Access to Clewer Village during overnight road closures
  • Document C: Main diversion route during overnight closures

During each phase of work, the lane under construction - in Mill Lane and Parsonage Lane – would be closed, with traffic flowing in one direction at a time. Traffic along the A308 will continue to have two-way traffic flow, all controlled by traffic lights.

The overnight road closures would only be required for the preparatory works and final surfacing. Mill Lane, Clewer Court Road and Clewer Park residents would be able to leave and enter via Stovell Road, under the viaduct, during these periods.

HAVE YOUR SAY

RBWM is seeking people's views on plan for the proposed scheme, and we will love to hear from you. The three-week consultation is open until 23:59, 05/02/2023. The draft plans can also be viewed in person at any borough library. As an alternative to this online consultation, you can submit comments in writing to: Transport Service Lead, Town Hall, St Ives Road, Maidenhead SL6 1RF

There will also be public presentations of the proposed scheme by the borough at The Swan Public House, Mill Lane, Windsor on Monday 16th January 2023, and Monday 30th January 2023, between 5:00pm –6.30pm, where full details of the scheme will be explained.
